Diman Alumni from 1995

  • Christopher DeMello (email)

    Since graduating from Diman, I enrolled at Umass Dartmouth. I graduated from the Electrical Engineering program and immediately accepted a position at General Dynamics (in Taunton, and Needham, MA) as an Electrical Engineer. My department works with all the command, control, communication, or computing projects that come through our facility. My department is charged with maintenance and up keep of the Minuteman, IPIC, and REACT Nuclear Ballistic missile systems. I am single and live in Somerset, MA. While in college I was trained in classical voice, and participated in a few collegiate choral groups and ensembles. I am involved with local theater and musical productions that raise money for charity as well as bring arts to the community. I am also heavily involved in my church.

    See you at the reunions.
