Takacs Award (Employer)

CEED Lou Takacs Award

This award honors Lou Takacs, a long-time employee of E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Company, who was a co-op student at Northwestern University. At Dupont, Lou recruited and supervised co-op students for many years, overseeing the successes of many young people from various schools across the country.

Upon his retirement from Dupont, Lou joined the staff of the co-op office at the University of Kentucky where he worked until his death in 2003. Lou was a strong supporter of CEED, having served in many capacities, including Chairman and was a recipient of the Alvah K. Borman and Clement J. Freund Awards.

This award began as the Corporate Recognition Award in 2003 and officially was re-named the Lou Takacs Award by the CEED Board.
