"The selection of Ken Witzeling by the faculty to be the 2012 Outstanding Alumnus was an outstanding choice. I have known Ken for many years during his years of service for the Wyoming Pharmacy Association, serving as president, and during his service to the state on the Wyoming State Board of Pharmacy for 12 years, where he served as president for two terms," says Dean John Vandel.
"Ken has not only served pharmacy, but he has also served his community by being a caring pharmacist and owner of Skyline Drug in Powell, Wyoming, and he has also been a community supporter in many ways. In Powell, he served as a leader in forming a community corporation, which founded a community clothing store owned by the citizens of Powell who own stock in the corporation. Ken and Betty’s son, Todd, followed Ken’s career path for a while by graduating from the UW SOP but then went on to study medicine. He is currently a medical doctor and practices in Casper."
