Len Crispino, Chair of Niagara College’s Board of Governors and retired president and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, has been honoured with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal.
James Knight, president and CEO of the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) presented Crispino with the award during a ceremony on Feb. 21, 2013 at the Wine Visitor + Education Centre. The ACCC was invited by the Office of the Governor General to nominate individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to their respective colleges, as well as Canada’s college sector.
“Len’s record of public service and commitment to community are extraordinary,” said Knight. “Niagara College and the broader college sector are fortunate to have such a widely-respected business leader champion the important role that colleges play in support of their communities.”
