Scholarship Tribute Dinner

The College of Mount Saint Vincent organizes the annual Scholarship Tribute Dinner to unite leaders in business, government, and other industries to raise scholarship funds. Since its founding, the College has sought to expand educational opportunity. It serves a diverse population of students who possess extraordinary ability but limited means, half of whom are among the first generation of their families to pursue higher education. The proceeds of the Scholarship Tribute Dinner create life-altering scholarships and financial aid awards.

The event honors individuals whose lives and professional achievements illustrate the values of the College’s mission and the charism of the Sisters of Charity of New York. The 2015 honorees are:

William M. O’Connor

Thompson & Knight LLP

Cheryl C. Shea

Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Training New York City Police Department


All the men and women of the New York City Police Department
