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.
