GRADUATE SPOTLIGHT: Manthala George ’62
In 2009, the City of Brockton, Mass., named an elementary school after Manthala George Jr., who graduated from Stonehill in 1962 with a degree in economics and went on to become superintendent of the Brockton School System. The son of Lebanese immigrants, George dedicated his professional life to community service. In 1995, he received the Stonehill President’s Medal for his contributions to public life.
“The quality of the students, professors, administrators and members of the clergy that I have met is what really makes Stonehill a special place. I have never felt apart from Stonehill and it has always been a very special part of my life. Quite frankly, I owe my entire professional career to Stonehill.”
