On Founders Day, the College honors outstanding student groups for community service and academic achievement. A new award with special historical meaning was presented this year: the Rev. Dr. Frederic Sutter Founders Day Award for Service. Maria Hartmann created the award to honor her great-grandfather, the founder of Wagner's Staten Island campus, and she attended the convocation to present the award to Kevin Ferreira '13 for his work with the immigrant community in Port Richmond, Staten Island.
