Homecoming 2005 festivities at Potomac State College of West Virginia University are shaping up nicely this year and everyone has their attention on the awards banquet, which is being held in the Lough Gymnasium on Saturday, Oct. 22, with social hour beginning at 5:30 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m.Herbert D. Deremer will receive, along with two others, the Alumni Achievement Award.Deremer graduated from Fort Ashby High School in 1943 and from Potomac State in 1946. He went on to earn degrees from West Virginia University and Harvard before joining the Foreign Service, embarking on a lifetime of travel that would take him all over the world and familiarize him with every thing from unstable dictators to camel-aided trips through the desert.Deremer's first assignment was in Iran where he had to deal with inconveniences such as extreme shortages of electricity and a trek through the desert with a string of camels. Soon afterwards, Deremer visited Yugoslavia, Libya and Moscow.Other countries that stand out in Deremer's memory are Hungary, which he describes as having “a vibrant people” and Afghanistan, whose descriptions are of a proud and fierce people who inhabit a virtual wilderness.
