University of Virginia Mourns Director
The University of Virginia lost a dedicated employee and alumnus recently when Scott Keeney, director of University Printing and Copying Services, passed away in his home at the age of 58.
A UV employee for 32 years, Mr. Keeney was appointed director in 1993 and worked hard to build his 47-employee in-plant’s capabilities and reputation. It was ranked among the top 50 in-plants in the country by IPG.
Though the in-plant had a deficit when he started, he turned this around by bringing in several very large jobs and adding services like design, mail and print-for-pay. This year the in-plant reported more than $5 million in sales. He was working on adding photography services at the time of his death.
Mr. Keeney graduated from the University of Virginia in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He served in the United States Navy until being honorably discharged as a lieutenant in 1972.
A frequent attendee of the Association of College and University Printers conference, Mr. Keeney enjoyed one last ACUP meeting this past spring in Boston. His friends there join all of us in the in-plant community in mourning his loss.
