Charles DuBois, president of Standard Process Inc.(R) (Palmyra, Wis.) received an honorary doctorate of laws from Logan College of Chiropractic (Chesterfield, Mo.). The degree was given to DuBois for his continuous commitment to give back to academic institutions that cultivate tomorrow's health leaders. DuBois gave the key-note address for Logan's 159th commencement ceremony where 72 students received their Doctor of Chiropractic degrees.
DuBois, through Standard Process, has made significant contributions to chiropractic, contributing financially to campus renovations for many of the chiropractic schools, providing funding for endowed nutrition chairs and scholarship programs, and supplying products to college clinics. DuBois furthers his own involvement by serving as a board member of several chiropractic associations.
Logan College of Chiropractic President Dr. George A. Goodman (DC) presented the award, calling DuBois "a strong leader in today's health profession."
This is DuBois' second honorary doctorate of laws. He was awarded earlier in the year with an honorary doctorate from National University of Health Sciences (Lombard, Ill.).
DuBois learned how to manufacture whole food supplements from the ground up, beginning his career hand-weeding beet fields on the company farm in 1983. He received his electrical engineering degree in 1988, and joined Standard Process full time in 1989 as a plant engineer. DuBois became president of the company in 1995. Three years later, he graduated with a master's degree in engineering management from the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Under DuBois' direction, Standard Process has been named to the INC. 5,000 list for the past three years, and ranks among Wisconsin's top 75 privately-held companies. The DuBois family is the third generation to own and operate the company since its inception in 1929.
