Four Catholic Memorial School graduates have been named recipients of the school’s annual distinguished alumni awards. The alumni–Dennis Curran, Jack Cradock, Thomas Manning and Myles Dudley–were honored at a formal ceremony on November 8 at Boston’s Westin Copley Place Hotel.
Named after the school motto “Vince in Bono Malum”– which translates to “Conquer evil by doing good”– the annual awards are bestowed in three categories: Distinguished Professional Achievement, Outstanding Service to Community and Outstanding Young Alumnus.
Curran and Manning received the award for Professional Achievement. Curran, General Counsel and Senior Vice President of Labor Litigation and Policy for the National Football League, was praised for being the “institutional memory” of the league in the past three decades. Manning, who served as deputy chancellor of Commonwealth Medicine, devoted 34 years to growing UMass-Medical School’s facilities and partnerships in making it a national leader in the medical field.
The school recognized 1961 graduate Jack Cradock with the Service to Community Award. As president and CEO of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, Cradock has demonstrated a lifetime of commitment to serving the medical needs of the poor and disenfranchised.
Myles Dudley, a 1998 graduate of the school, earned the Outstanding Young Alumnus Award. In the brief span of time since his graduation, Dudley rose to leadership positions at several financial firms in Boston before co-founding Pinnacle Private Wealth.
President Paul Sheff ’62 will recognize each award recipient at the November 8 dinner. “We are so proud of these individual alumni. They truly represent the best and brightest of our alumni and they are inspiring models for the next generation of CM graduates,” he said.
