Douglas DiSabito '98 Named Outstanding Alumni of the Year

Douglas DiSabito was recognized as Castleton’s 2018 Outstanding Alumni of the Year, announced by Alumni Association Board of Directors Treasurer Gary Quinn at Fall Convocation.

A member of the class of 1998, DiSabito was a non-traditional student during his time on campus, earning a B.A. in Art. After graduating from Castleton, DiSabito continued his education at Concord Law School, while also working full-time for the Vermont Judiciary in North Hero, Vermont.

Upon completing his degree, DiSabito received his Juris Doctor with honors, and in 2011 was admitted to the Vermont Bar.

He currently serves as the Vermont State's Attorney in Grand Isle County. In 2014, he ran against a three-term incumbent in the primary. Receiving the nomination of both the Democratic and Republican parties, DiSabito went on to win the general election. He is currently the only openly gay State’s Attorney in Vermont, and the first State’s Attorney to have obtained his law degree solely online.

Outside of his professional responsibilities, DiSabito is actively involved in his local community, helping to organize and host several local fundraisers. He remains dedicated to promoting his community’s access to opportunities and maintaining local justice.

“I am proud to be a graduate and it is humbling to learn that Castleton is also proud that I am a graduate,” said DiSabito.
