Connie Neace Memorial Community Choice Award

Connie was an employee of the University of Dayton Since 2008. For the past several years she worked as a Senior Administrative Secretary in the School of Business Administration supporting both the Crotty Center and the Center for the Integration of Faith and Work.


Connie was instrumental in supporting the center’s annual pitch competition that helps community and student entrepreneurs launch and grow their new ventures. Connie’s work with Flyer Pitch has impacted several communities and student entrepreneurs over the past 8 years. She was also very involved in supporting the center’s two primary initiatives, The Hub at the Arcade, and the Greater West Dayton Incubator.

In honor of Connie, Flyer Pitch has created the Connie Neace Community Choice Award. Winners of this award are voted for by the community and will receive an award of up to $5,000 to help fund their start-up.
