DAVID DOBOS '73,
In the West Columbus community, Dave has served as president of the Hilltop Business Association, helping the organization place economic development as a top community priority. He also has served on the boards of the J. Ashburn, Jr., Youth Center and Homes on the Hill and as a member of the Greater Hilltop Area Commission. Dave also was the first treasurer of the West High School Alumni Association in 1991-92. In addition, Dave has served on two national committees for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, from which he earned a degree in Economics in 1977. While a student at MIT, he was awarded the prestigious Karl Taylor Compton Prize for promoting high standards of excellence within the MIT community. Some of Dave's most significant work, however, has been his volunteer counseling of high School students about college admissions and financial aid and preparation for the SAT and ACT. He literally has helped hundreds of Hilltop area young people seek and gain admission to college as well as maximize their scores on college entrance exams. Many have become the first in their families to attend college. While at West, Dave was a National Merit Commended Scholar, second in his class, student body president, a member of West's award-winning In the Know team, a varsity athlete, and a musician selected to two all-state groups. Dave is married to Lora, a professor and administrator at The Ohio State University. They have two sons, Joseph (born 1997) and Alex (born 1998). The family resides in Dublin.
