Alumni Spotlight: Dr. Dennis Gallon

Dr. GallonCongratulations to Dr. Dennis Gallon (Ph.D ’75) for recently receiving the 2015 James L Wattenbarger Award from the Association of Florida Colleges.

The prestigious award was established in 2001 to honor those who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to one of Florida’s colleges or the Florida College System.

Gallon, president emeritus of Palm Beach State College, recently retired from a 51-year education career. He made a permanent impact on the Palm Beach college. In June, its board of trustees announced the college’s fifth campus would be named in honor of Gallon.

“I’m committed to this institution. I cannot think of too many better ways I can spend an hour or spend a day than to be here at this institution,” Dr. Gallon said. “I wish I could do this job forever.”
