Schnecksville, Pa., Oct. 5, 2023 – Lehigh Carbon Community College has named local attorney Buddy Lesavoy as the 2023 recipient of the Collegiate Award of Distinction, which is determined each year by the college’s Board of Trustees. Trustees Chair David L. Krause presented the award to Lesavoy at the LCCC Foundation’s annual golf tournament on Oct. 2.

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.

Lesavoy has served on the LCCC Foundation Board of Directors since 2009, and most recently served as chairman of the board. He is co-founder and a partner in the Allentown law practice of Lesavoy Butz and Seitz LLC, and is an active and committed member of the community. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees for St. Luke’s University Health Network and the Board of Associates for both Cedar Crest College and Muhlenberg College.

A graduate of William Allen High School, Buddy was honored by the school in 2012 as a Distinguished Alumnus. He also received a Practice and Service to the Community award by the Emmaus Rotary Club as well as numerous other awards and recognitions through the years.

He is the immediate past president of the Bar Association of Lehigh County. He earned his law degree in 1987, his master’s of business administration in 1982 and his bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1980, all from George Washington University.

“Buddy Lesavoy has devoted himself to giving back to the community and is generous with his time to the benefit of a number of organizations,” says LCCC Trustee David Krause. “His commitment has contributed to the vitality of the community and the college, as well as to the businesses in the Lehigh Valley.”
