Each year, A Community of Excellence draws a crowd of about 400 who gather in support of Saint Rose and to recognize those who are dedicated to doing good work in the community. This year, on June 15, three people were honored: Elaine Houston H’04 and reporter and anchor at WNYT Channel 13 (NBC affiliate), Sharon Casey Duker G’15 and President/Co-owner of Westco Inc., and Robert Curley, Chairman of the New York Region of Berkshire Bank.

The luncheon, the largest fundraising event of the year for the College, directly benefits our Saint Rose students. Honorees were introduced by current students, who shared their own stories.

In a video introduced at the event by President Carolyn J. Stefanco, the College showcased recent alumni, including those who were so touched by their experience at Saint Rose that they continue to give back. If you are moved to give too, you can find out more here.
