HWS President Mark Gearan was among four people who received the “Sharing the Light” Award from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester at a dinner June 7 at Club 86 in Geneva.
In a story in the weekly Catholic Courier, he said “I believe that the 21st-century citizens will need to understand that service is an important part of the equation. Making service an everyday part of you life is a value that I think is important.”
A number of students, faculty, staff and board members from the colleges accompanied Gearan and his family to the dinner, and he said he accepted the award on behalf of the colleges' work in the community.
