Winifred & Joseph Amaturo Honored by NSU with President’s Award for Excellence in Community Service

NSU 497

L-R: NSU President George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D. presents Winifred and Joseph Amaturo with the President’s Award for Excellence in Community Service at the Celebration of Excellence event. 

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) President George L. Hanbury, Ph.D., presented the President’s Award for Excellence in Community Service to philanthropists Winifred and Joseph Amaturo at the university’s annual Celebration of Excellence event on Saturday, Feb. 1. This year’s event had special significance as NSU celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Established in 1997, the President’s Excellence in Community Service Award recognizes extraordinary professional engagement activities by a member of the South Florida community. The award encourages the ongoing pursuit of service and exemplifies NSU’s “community” core value.

“As we celebrate NSU’s 50th anniversary, it is fitting that we honor two members of our family who helped us get to where we are today,” said President Hanbury. “Mr. and Mrs. Amaturo are exemplary citizens of our community and stewards of NSU’s legacy. They have made a lasting impact and they deserve to be recognized on a grand stage for their hard work and commitment to our future.”
