2021. Dave Stone, ’68, U.S. Army – Throughout his 20-year military career, his second career as a government advisor and his third calling as an active UW alumnus, Dave Stone has modeled commitment and dedication. The lessons Stone learned in the Army have proved useful throughout his life and in his endeavors at the UW. “As an officer or supervisor, your first obligation is to take care of your people,” he says.
