HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM
The Clarence E. Dammon Dean's Scholar Program is named for a former Purdue University speech professor, registrar, and director of admissions who died in 1957 while employed at Purdue. At the time of his death, the Purdue Board of Trustees voted to defer fees for his children, who would be attending the University a few years later. In 1976, the Dean's Scholar Program officially began. In 2003, Clarence's son Jim Dammon, and Jim's wife, Marilynn named the Clarence E. Dammon Dean's Scholar Program with a gift that honors Jim's father and expresses gratitude to Purdue University.
