Lehman College Celebrates 40 Years
Lehman College and the Lehman College Foundation sponsored a special benefit for student scholarships recently at Bridgewaters in downtown Manhattan. The College’s achievements over forty years were highlighted.
Al Carey, president and CEO of Frito-Lay North America, who is recognized for his commitment to both his customers and to talent development within his company, received the Lehman Leadership Award. Award-winning musician Michael Bacon, who has composed scores for twelve feature films as well as hundreds of hours of primetime television shows, received the Alumni Achievement Award.
Frito-Lay North America aims to achieve “performance with purpose,” combining strong business results with a concern for health and wellness, environmental sustainability, and staff development. In recent years, the College has shared a close relationship with the company, which has supported Lehman students with scholarships and internship opportunities.
Michael Bacon was a student of Distinguished Professor John Corigliano and has performed and recorded with his brother Kevin as the Bacon Brothers for the past fourteen years. The Bacon Brothers gave a special performance at the gala. Grammy-nominated violinist Philippe Quint served as the master of ceremonies.#
