“If you wonder who is responsible for the achievement that we celebrate this night, look around you. It’s you,” McShane said to the crowd during an overarching address of gratitude. “Each of you, and all of you, and 60,000 others, have propelled us across the line.”
McShane specifically thanked the university’s Board of Trustees, whose members gave more than $160 million of the total $540 million raised. The football and women’s basketball teams joined the Fordham band on stage with McShane to sing the university’s fight song.
“You have all raised the Old Maroon on high, for the greater glory of God,” McShane said to the crowd.
Thomas A. Moore, Esq., LAW ’72, and Judith Livingston Moore, Esq., parents of Fordham students, as well as William S. Stavropoulos, Ph.D., PHA ’61, and I. Linda Stavropoulos were recognized during the dinner as winners of the Founder’s Award.
