Scott Dannemiller

Scott Dannemiller, Elder Class of 1972, played on Elder’s tennis team all four years and was team captain during his senior year.  In August of 1986, he was married and had two children but his life was cut short that year due to a freak accident.  Scott’s family owned the Dannemiller Electric Co., Inc. and he was performing electrical work for Great American Insurance Companies in their downtown office building when an electrical explosion occurred in a high –voltage vault housing the company’s electrical system.  Scott’s mom, Martha Dannemiller, called Elder in October of that same year to create a scholarship in Scott’s name.
