Presenting the Dean's Award for Exemplary Service to Troy Senkiewicz

Whenever Troy Senkiewicz ¬†fixed or upgraded something in the TV studio during his Elon student days, he’d mark it “Troy-Built.”

Even a decade later, we’d occasionally find some item branded “Troy-Built.”

Not anymore. When we upgraded this summer to high-definition in the McEwen studios and control room, Troy (class of ’98) took time off from running his California company DigiMax Consulting to return to Elon for a couple of weeks to help our engineering staff with the huge project.

We invited Troy back to campus this week to present him the Dean’s Award for Exemplary Service.

His involvement was crucial to our success in making the HD transformation and for securing gifts from vendors such as Sony, General Cable/GEPCO and ClarkPowell that totaled in the tens of thousands of dollars. Thanks, Troy!
