Dale Neeper says
Denise Carnaggio continues to be an outstanding asset to Harford County. Some years ago, I had the privilege to work with her to encourage technical education in this county. She served on volunteer boards and was very active in creating business and education partnership. I am a great admirer of Denise, and this county is lucky to have her.
Denise has been a power house of energy in the promotion of Harford County with the HEAT Center, NMTC, Army Alliance BRAC and many other beneficial projects for the development of this county. A well deserved award.
