With more than a decade of experience with the U.S. Congress and New York State Department of Labor, Dennis is now the Director of Consulting services at CGI. Previously he served as Executive Deputy Commissioner of the NYS Department of Labor. Dennis was at Camp from 1977-86 and graduated from St. Lawrence University.
“My brother Bob and I were second half scholarship campers in August 1977. My mother had heard about Camp from her good friend Mildred McCormick, mother of Kevin and Kyle McCormick. We had a good contingent from my hometown of Kingston back then– the McCormicks, Uhls, Higginses, a couple of Boyles – via Bob Stubbs, the local Y director who I believe had attended in the ’40s or ’50s. We were all in the Leader’s Club at the Y, and I actually worked there in junior high. Camp has been among the most important influences in my life,” said Dennis, “part of the foundation on which my values are built. The people I admired there remain my role models, people whom I try to live up to.”
Dennis is looking forward to joining the Board. “I think that my experience in government, at both the state and federal levels, could prove useful. I enjoy working with others to confront issues and come up with creative solutions.”
