This Day in Bonaventure History
April 12, 2007
The National Federation for Just Communities (NFJC) of Western New York honored three organizations and 38 individuals for their service to others in the Buffalo area during its Community Leaders Awards at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center on this day.
Among the honorees was Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., S.T.D., St. Bonaventure University president, who was honored for her efforts to promote interfaith dialogue and environments. One of her biggest accomplishments was the establishment of Bonaventure’s Damietta Center.
Opened in 2006, the Damietta Center celebrates the diversity of the university’s students and faculty and provides cultural, intellectual and spiritual enrichment.
