Alumni Presentations

Alumni are a vital asset to Delaware County Community College and current students, and can make immeasurable contributions to the College by providing personal and corporate testimonials that can help inspire and motivate our community. 

Alumni guest speakers are always invited to speak to current students or recent graduates and share their experiences. We’ve played host to a number of award winning alumni and love to tell stories that inspire.

One such presentation was delivered by members of West Chester-based Schramm, Inc. The event featured Jeff Roten, Delaware County Community College Alumnus and Schramm-man-on-the-ground at the rescue dig site of the Chile mine collapse, and Bruce D. Mackay, Product Support Manager, Schramm is a West-Chester based drilling-equipment company that played a major role in the rescue of 33 Chilean miners this past October.

Roten, a former Delaware County Community College student, studied Mechanical Systems at the College in 2006 and was presented an Honorary Alumni Award for his efforts in the rescue and recovery operation. More than 100 faculty, students, Alumni and guests listened to details of the delicate operation to bring the 33 miners back to the surface two months ahead of schedule leading to one of the most inspiring stories of the year.
