It is with a heavy heart that we recognize the passing of John Canepa, a great friend of Aquinas College. John's contributions to Grand Rapids and Aquinas cannot be overstated. He was a Trustee Emeritus who was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Business Administration from Aquinas at our commencement ceremony in 2003. To recognize them for their leadership, generosity and spirit of service, John and his wife Marie were awarded the Norbert J. Hruby Award from the college in 2014. He was a great advocate and leader for Aquinas and our community owes him our thanks.

Dr. Kevin Quinn
President of Aquinas College
