Welcome to the Dale Carnegie Honor Society website! We are excited that you are interested in forming a Chapter and hope that you find everything you need to both answer your questions and get you started on the Chapter Application process. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Jack Rogers at Rogers@ucmo.edu.
The Dale Carnegie Honor Society was founded on the campus of the University of Central Missouri in 2012. The intent was three-fold: 1) to formally recognize the rich legacy of Mr. Dale Carnegie, one of our most illustrious alumni; 2) to introduce the current generation of students to his life-changing teachings and philosophies; and finally, 3) to empower students of this and future generations through the formation of personal and professional mentoring relationships.
Mr. Dale Carnegie attended the University of Central Missouri, then the Warrensburg State Normal School (officially designated a Teacher's College in 1919), from 1906-1908, graduating with his teaching credentials. Mr. Carnegie was a frequent participant in intercollegiate public speaking and debate competitions and in his memoirs credits his speaking activities with helping to lay the foundation of a lifetime of speaking and teaching. He was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University in 1955.
