Trocaire College in Buffalo presented Bishop Richard J. Malone with the President's Distinguished Service Award during the college's 2015 Reflections awards dinner at Salvatore's Italian Gardens in Depew on Thursday, Oct. 8.
The honor is presented to a person or group whose community participation exemplifies Trocaire College's Mercy mission without regard for community profile. Trocaire also recognized several members of the community who reflect the values of the Sisters of Mercy and the mission of Trocaire.
The 2015 Reflections honorees also included Dr. Candace S. Johnson, president and chief executive officer of Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo; Mary Beth and Louis John Billittier, owners of Chef's Restaurant and Trocaire's partners in the P-TECH collaborative: the Lackawanna City School District, Erie 1 BOCES; and Catholic Health.
Proceeds from the Reflections event helps provide the scholarship support Trocaire students need to realize their goals, improve their circumstances and become caring service professionals in their chosen fields.
