Dennis  Staley
  • BS Metallurgical Engineering 1957

Dennis Staley '57 was the first in his family to attend college. He chose Michigan Tech, and he's never regretted the decision. After earning his bachelor's degree in metallurgical and materials engineering, he spent most of his career in the energy industry with Panhandle Eastern Corporation in Houston.

This man of few words sums up his Tech education as excellent, his guiding philosophy as honesty, and the key to his success being hard work. "I grew up on a farm. I know what it takes to get an education and succeed. You've got to work."
