Dr. Michael Giovannetti is this year’s Kremen School’s Top Dog.
On Friday, Oct. 26 Fresno State held its annual Top Dog Alumni Awards Gala. The Top Dog Alumni Awards Gala recognizes the accomplishments of some of Fresno State’s most notable alumni.
“Fresno State did prepare me for life,” said Giovannetti. “I became connected to teaching the moment I saw that excellence and care for kids in that classroom.”
Giovannetti moved to Fresno from Italy in 1959. “So, my journey began in a small town of about 500 people to large Fresno” he says.
Giovannetti completed all of his education at Fresno State, starting with his bachelor’s degree in 1970 and attaining his doctorate in educational administration in 2001. During his time at Fresno State, Giovannetti also completed his teaching credential.
Giovannetti says “I know that the Save Mart Center is huge, but I could fill it with the people that I’m grateful to.”
