Ammons with the Community Leadership Award at the BlueGold All-Star Basketball Games on Saturday, March 16 at 3 p.m. at the University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center.

"As an organization we wanted to choose someone who was truly making a difference, so our staff reached out to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the BlueGold games, Morton Kimmel, Esquire, and he knew our choice was Dean Ammons, as he simply said, ‘Dean Ammons has established herself as a community leader in the Delaware Valley.’ With that piece of information, our decision was easy," said Mallory Silva from Best Buddies Delaware.

Dean Ammons came to Widener in 2006 from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in Cleveland, Ohio, where she was associate dean and professor of law. She has served on the faculty of the National Judicial College since 1993 and has received numerous awards including the Stapleton Award in 2006 from the Cleveland-Marshall Alumni Association and the “Excellence in Education Award” from the Delaware Barristers Association.

In January 2010, Dean Ammons was appointed by Governor Jack Markell of Delaware to be the special investigator in the case of the alleged child molestations by pediatrician Earl Bradley. Her work resulted in a package of nine legislative reforms that were passed unanimously by the Delaware General Assembly. In October of 2011, she was honored with the Service to Children Award at the Christopher W. White Distinguished Access to Justice Awards program presented by the Delaware State Bar Association.

In addition to her continued service to the National Judicial College, Dean Ammons serves on the Board of Directors of the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce, as a member of the e-Treasury Blue Ribbon Advisory Commission on Productivity Management, and as a Trustee of the Christiana Care Health System of Wilmington, Del.

The Widener Law community congratulates Dean Ammons on a well-deserved honor!
