The Iowa State University Alumni Association recently bestowed one of the college community’s top honors to Lenexa’s Craig Denny, who served as the SM West representative on the Shawnee Mission Board of Education for more than two decades.

Denny, who holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Iowa State, was back in Ames in October to receive the Iowa State University Alumni Association Medal Award. Given each year since 1948, the medal honors a former Iowa State student “for long, loyal,
and outstanding service to the university through alumni-related activities.”
