Outstanding Alumnus Award

October 1, 2015


In 2012, when Patrick Callaghan ’72 retired as President of Pepperidge Farm, he left a company that ranked in the top two percent of brands worldwide in brand equity. Later that year, in recognition of his innovative leadership, Pepperidge Farm honored him by naming a new $30 million, 34,000-square-foot complex as the Patrick J. Callaghan Innovation Center in Norwalk, Connecticut. On Saturday, in appreciation for the honor that his business and leadership accomplishments have brought to Stonehill, the Alumni Association bestowed upon him the Outstanding Alumnus Award. President John Denning, C.S.C. and Alumni Council President Christine Ferretti ’92 presented the award to Callaghan before his family and friends at a reception in Donahue Hall.
