Dennis Skulsky is synomynous with volunteering and enthusiasm. He is energetic and passionate about his community. He is someone who can take the germ of an idea ‘such as improving literacy’ and get everyone around him excited and turn the idea into a successful nation-wide program, called the CanWest Raise-a-Reader campaign for family literacy. In addition, Dennis is active in Vancouver with the 2005 Grey Cup Committee, the Vancouver Fireworks Society, the YMCA, the United Way, St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation, the Vancouver Public Library Foundation, the Vancouver Board of Trade, B.C. Business Council, and the UBC Faculty of Arts-Dean’s Advisory Board. All this, whilst publishing BC’s two largest newspapers and overseeing the Province’s biggest media operation. Dennis Skulsky exemplifies true all-around community service.
