Mr. Cassidy is a graduate of La Salle College High School, class of 1974. He received the medal during a dinner reception at his alma mater.
In selecting Michael Cassidy to be the 2016 President’s Medal recipient, Brother James Butler, FSC, President of La Salle College High School, explained the selection of Mr. Cassidy as follows: Michael proposes to the school community an eloquent example of a La Salle graduate who used his college preparatory education to earn outstanding professional credentials, qualifications he has unselfishly used in the service of his alma mater since receiving them. Furthermore, Mr. Cassidy’s deep knowledge of zoning and land use law was cited as being of inestimable value to La Salle College High School as the school has undertaken several campus development and expansion projects in recent decades.
Regarding Michael’s outstanding professional credentials, La Salle emphasized Mr. Cassidy’s time served as Springfield Township Commissioner in the 1990s and as legal counsel of many years’ standing to La Salle College High School. There is no doubt that Michael has found numerous ways remain of service to his alma mater for more than three decades.
Howland Hess O’Connell congratulates Michael on this well-deserved achievement, and thanks La Salle College High School for selecting Mr. Cassidy as the recipient of the 2016 President’s Medal.
