Robert and Connie Wolf Receive LCCC Collegiate Award of Distinction
published Thursday, November 14, 2019
Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) has named Robert and Connie Wolf as the 2019 recipients of the Collegiate Award of Distinction, which is determined each year by the college’s Board of Trustees. The award was presented to the Wolfs at a luncheon held during Veterans Awareness Week at the college.
The LCCC Board of Trustees selects the Collegiate Award of Distinction to recognize a person or organization for unique contributions to the community, service and dedication in support of education, and to honor those who have demonstrated their commitment to the college and its students. The award was established in 1991.
The Wolfs have been fervent advocates and supporters of the college for many years. They serve as board members on the Korea/Vietnam Memorial Board and were responsible for the construction of the United States Armed Forces Plaza on LCCC’s Schnecksville campus. Since the inception of the plaza in 2004, the Wolfs have coordinated an annual recognition event to honor and celebrate area veterans and their families. In 2018, the Wolfs acknowledged the centennial of World War I with a special recognition of Lehigh Valley soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice and whose names are now engraved on a monument in the plaza.
Robert and Connie Wolf continue to support and advocate on behalf of our veterans and provide the recognition that these men and women deserve, who have given so much on behalf of our community, state and nation.
“The Wolfs have dedicated themselves to recognizing veterans in our area,” says Ann L. Thompson, vice-chair of the LCCC Board of Trustees who presented the couple with their award at a luncheon on Nov. 13. “They are generous with their time in support of the armed forces, and their efforts contribute to the vitality of the community and the college.”
