This year, the council is honoring Jeffrey R. Immelt, H'10, Chairman and CEO of GE, with 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 for the celebration.
Over the past 28 years, the Tribute Dinner has raised more than $26 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. Javits Fellowships.
