Members of NAU Chain Gang will be selling these custom buttons this week with 2013 dedicatee David Pierotti's photo, a Homecoming tradition. In a tradition that dates back to 1936, students annually select a Homecoming dedicatee, an NAU faculty or staff member whom students feel has demonstrated exceptional service to the university and interest in its students. Dedicatees are honored during major events during Homecoming Week, which includes a banquet in their honor and a place in the Homecoming parade. A two-time alum with both a bachelor's and a master's degree from NAU, Pierotti began teaching at NAU in 1997. Pierotti is a three-time recipient of the student-nominated LOUIE Award and has twice been named the most influential faculty member by graduating seniors who have received the coveted Gold Axe Award. Pierotti will be celebrated at the annual Homecoming Dedicatee Banquet scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, at the High Country Conference Center. Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for non-students and are available through the Central Ticket Office.
