JOHN J. KENNEDY
Distinguished Board Member Award
A devoted Board member since 2004, John utilizes his strong skill set gleaned during a long career in marketing services -- including working as Sr. Vice President of Wirthlin Worldwide and Partner at Lippincott -- as Chair of CAB's Marketing & Enrollment Committee. John helped grow CAB's enrollment by 14% in the last three years. He is a graduate of Union College and lives with his wife, Carol, in Stamford, where they are active at their parish of St. Leo and proud parents of three young adult sons.
Alumni Service Award
A 2010 alumnus of CAB's St. Augustine campus, Tony has been a CAB Board member since 2018 and leads our Alumni Network. Tony has deep roots in the community and a profound desire to give back -- whether mentoring students in need or volunteering on Boards, including the Greater Bridgeport Symphony and, his alma mater, Fairfield Prep. He is a Project Manager at CBRE and has a B.S. in Engineering from Fordham. Familial bonds mean the world to Tony, who cherishes the times he gets to watch his younger brothers play football.
Lifetime Achievement Award
Pat has a long and successful career in education that spans 40 years. She has been an amazing principal at CAB's St Ann campus since 2012. She was also Principal at St. Jude's in Monroe, and a classroom teacher for over 20 years in the Dioceses of Bridgeport and Boston. Pat holds degrees in education and counseling from Salem State, Fitchburg State and Sacred Heart universities. She lives in Shelton with her husband, Gerry, and has four grown children. She is beloved by her community, and will be sorely missed when she retires in June.
