Mr. David Doglio 



David Doglio is a life-long resident of the Gardner-South Wilmington Community. He was born and raised in South Wilmington. As a GSW student, he participated in many activities including Math Club, Basketball, School Play, Student Council, and he was Sports Editor for the Yearbook. He also served as the Class President for the Class of 1974. David graduated from Illinois State University where he earned an accounting degree. He spent most of his career in the accounting field, and he continues to enjoy serving local residents as a tax preparer. His biggest accomplishment for the GSW Community was being a dedicated GSW school board member for over 20 years. He served as the Board President for many of those years. While serving on the board, he used his accounting background to guide financial decisions made by the district. He also played an instrumental role in many building project improvements to ensure a safe school environment for years to come. David continues to be available and willing to provide guidance and support to the GSW school district when needed. Throughout his adult life, he has been involved in many aspects of the community including volunteering his time on the St. Lawrence Parish Council and at various church activities including the local mobile food pantry.  He is also a Trustee of the South Wilmington Fire Protection District and Greenfield Township, Treasurer of the SWEB Sanitary District, and a member of the Knights of Columbus Council No. 1574. David also volunteers annually at South Wilmington’s Party in the Park. At the county level, he is a member of the Grundy County Justice Assistance Board. In previous years, he served on the St. Lawrence Parish Credit Union Board and has volunteered his time at the Elbow Benders Spaghetti Supper that supports youth baseball and softball, as well as many Prom Lock-Ins. His most treasured moments are spent with his family, including his wife, two daughters, and son-in-laws who are all graduates of GSW, along with his four grandchildren who are all Future Panthers. David is very proud of this small town community. He looks forward to continuing to support the GSW community, and he is always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. 


We are proud to call this active community member and proud GSW alum, Mr. David Doglio, a Panther Hall of Famer.
