Mr. White will be awarded the President's Medal for Excellence in recognition of his exceptional career, as well as the personal and professional contributions he has made to society.  More than 1,000 alumni, parents, and friends of Boston College will gather at the Waldorf Astoria on April 23, 2015 for the 27th Wall Street Council Tribute Dinner.

This award recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves by their outstanding personal and professional achievements. They exemplify the ideal proclaimed in Boston College’s motto, “Ever to Excel.”

Over the past 26 years, the Tribute Dinner has raised more than $22 million for the Wall Street Council Scholarship Fund. More than 300 scholarships have been awarded to undergraduates in the Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program. In addition to their accomplishments at BC, many of these students later become recipients of the nation's most prestigious academic awards, including Rhodes, Marshall, Winston Churchill, Truman and Goldwater Scholarships, as well as Fulbright and Jacob K.
