Brock bestows honorary degree on longtime supporter and local leader David S. Howes
Brock University will bestow an honorary degree upon Niagara businessman and community leader David S. Howes at this year’s Fall Convocation taking place during two ceremonies on Saturday, Oct. 13. He will be presented with the degree at the 10 a.m. ceremony.
Brock President Jack Lightstone said the University is very pleased to be able to honour Howes “for his commendable community leadership and commitment to our University, our students and our history.”
Howes has for decades served on many community boards and organizations, including as chair of the Brock University Board of Trustees.
“David is a well-respected business leader, and hardworking supporter and generous benefactor of Brock University,” said Lightstone. “The entire community feels the influence of his leadership as an entrepreneur, volunteer and philanthropist. His contributions to Niagara are immeasurable, and his presence and impact on the University will be felt by faculty, staff and students for generations to come.”
Convocation will be held in the Ian D. Beddis Gymnasium and a reception for graduates, family members and other guests will be held after each ceremony. Tickets are not required. All guests are welcome.
