NEW: Worcester State to Honor Distinguished Alumni

Friday, March 30, 2012

 

Stephen Sycks

Worcester State University will honor four graduates at its 27th Annual Distinguished Alumni Awards on Wednesday.

This year’s recipients are Catherine McEvoy-Zdoncyzk of Auburn, Stephen Sycks of Worcester, Vincent Nieroda of New York City and Todd Leach of Bow, New Hampshire. Each of the honorees will be given the highest non-degree recognition that the university bestows upon alumni.

McEvoy-Zdonczyk’s success in the field of healthcare will be honored at the event. She began her career at the trade-show marketing firm Admore Inc. after graduating Worcester State in 1996. She quickly moved up the ladder in healthcare, and is now the vice president of central and western Massachusetts for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care.

Sycks graduated Worcester State in 1991, and is currently the director of operations at the March of Dimes. His service in the community will be honored, particularly his involvement with the Boy Scouts. Sycks co-founded a local unit, and leads troops and packs.

Nieroda is the president and CEO of American European Insurance Group in New York, and graduated Worcester State in 1968. Nieroda will be honored for his distinguished professional career that has seen work at several large insurance firms.

Leach, meanwhile, stayed in academia, and is currently the president of Granite State College in Concord, New Hampshire. The 1983 graduate of Worcester State will be honored for his long career in education.
