AMHERST, N.Y. -- Daemen College will honor Stuart Angert with its prestigious Community Excellence Award at the college’s annual Scholarship Gala on Sept. 20 at The Buffalo Club. The gala is the college’s premier event to raise scholarship support for students and to recognize a distinguished leader in Western New York.
The Community Excellence Award recognizes a community member who serves as an exemplary leader and who defines the spirit of Daemen.
A life-long resident of Amherst, Angert is an alumnus of Nichols School. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Colgate University and an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.
Angert serves on the boards of several nonprofit organizations in the Western New York and Adirondack regions. He devotes a significant amount of his efforts as a member of the board of directors of Independent Health and as chair of the Independent Health Foundation.
“Stuart embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of the college and what it means to be a servant leader for our community,” said Daemen President Gary Olson. “I cannot think of a more deserving person to receive this award, and I look forward to celebrating this special achievement with Stuart’s family and friends.”
