Past years' recipients

During the 1994 Native Summit at UAF, Dennis Demmert recommended that something be done to recognize individuals whose actions have proven their support. The Dennis Demmert award provides an opportunity for students to nominate a person whom they feel has positively affected Alaska Native and rural students' academic efforts at UAF. 2021 marks the 26th year that the RSS students and staff will recognize individuals at UAF whose efforts demonstrate UAF's goal of being the educational center for Alaska Natives.
