Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) has named Sean A. Boyle, president of Boyle Construction, Inc., as the 2018 recipient of the Collegiate Award of Distinction, which is determined each year by the college’s Board of Trustees. The award was presented to Boyle, honorary chair of the 25th annual LCCC Foundation Golf Classic, on Monday, Aug. 27, at Lehigh Country Club during the golf classic’s dinner.
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.
“Sean demonstrates every day the impact an individual can make on his community,” says LCCC president Dr. Ann D. Bieber. “The fact that his father Tony founded the LCCC Foundation golf tournament 25 years ago, and that Sean has worked so hard this year to grow donations in support of student scholarships shows his commitment to LCCC and the community at large. This award reflects Sean’s selfless approach to ensuring his community continues to grow and improve.”
Since 1996, Boyle has served as president of Boyle Construction, Inc., which has become a leader in community involvement by allocating staff and donations to many local non-profit organizations. Under Boyle’s leadership, the company was named a 2013 Excellence in Business Award winner as well as one of the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania. Lehigh Valley Business magazine identified Boyle as an area notable and placed him in the running for the Valley’s 10 Most Influential People.
He is a member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce Board of Governors and serves on the golf tournament committee for Easter Seals of Eastern Pennsylvania and the American Diabetes Association. In addition, he serves on the board of directors for the American Diabetes Association, the executive board for March of Dimes and the Bethlehem Chamber Small Business Council. He is a 1995 graduate of Leadership Lehigh Valley.
His father, Tony, is a 1970 graduate of LCCC and was the founder of the golf tournament 25 years ago. The younger Boyle is carrying on his father’s legacy as chair of the 2018 tournament.
Over the years, the Boyle family had donated generously to the LCCC Foundation, making a truly incredible impact on the lives of LCCC students.
