Bethany College alumnus Dan Verakis ’94, senior vice president and director of public relations at Cramer-Krasselt, on Saturday addressed Kalon Scholarship candidates during a special luncheon.
Verakis is an accomplished international communicator,
entrepreneur, and strategic business consultant with more than 18 years
of corporate experience. He is also the founder and CEO of
SafetyBook.org, a consumer product registry and recall monitoring
service, as well as a director at Technori, a Chicago-based group that
organizes and celebrates tech startups and entrepreneurship.
The luncheon recognized incoming students with leadership
potential and served as part of the Kalon Leadership Scholarship
Competition. Bethany College hosts potential scholarship recipients
every year during Kalon Weekend, giving them the opportunity to tour
the campus and participate in events such as the luncheon and a variety
of leadership seminars.
Following the luncheon and keynote address, three-person
teams composed of a Bethany faculty or staff member, a current Bethany
student and an alumnus, conduct in-depth interviews of each candidate
to complete the evaluation process.
