2019 President's Award Citation for Bob Rivers '86

May 30, 2019


Robert F. Rivers, as an alumnus and a member of our Board of Trustees, you have given so much to Stonehill in terms of service to our educational mission and to our students. We are a stronger, more vibrant college thanks to the generous ways in which you contribute to so many facets of campus life and our surrounding community.

What impresses us is that Stonehill is not the only cause that you nurture and support. One of the most successful business leader in the Commonwealth, you have always gone beyond self-interest to think of others.

The range of your community outreach, which is both personal and corporate, is considerable and constant. Whether the issue is sustainability, diversity, equity, fairness, economic development, access or opportunity, you share your expertise, energy, time and resources in serving those in our society who have been excluded or denied.

As you know, at Stonehill, we want our students to become alumni who use their strong minds and even stronger hearts in the creation of a more just and compassionate world. You live your live to that same end, which is why we hold you in such high esteem.

Therefore, because you lead by example as a business and civic leader and because you give unselfishly of yourself with such distinction, Stonehill College is proud to present you with the President’s Award for Excellence.

Given this 30th day of May,
Two Thousand and Nineteen
