SNHU President named Citizen of the Year
New England Council member, Southern New Hampshire University, announced that President Paul LeBlanc was named Citizen of the Year by Greater Manchester Chamber.
Over the course of his 20 years as president, Paul LeBlanc not only educated New Hampshire residents, but also residents from across the globe. With the Global Education Movement starting in 2017, SNHU has made low-cost degrees accessible to anyone who has the desire to learn. Since LeBlanc’s start, SNHU has transformed from a small 2800-student university to the largest nonprofit online university with 175,000 learners.
“The best way to describe Paul’s impact on our community is that he inspires us to do more for others,” said Diane Fitzpatrick, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester. “Paul’s imprint on higher education and the city of Manchester is significant, and his contributions will impact our community for decades to come.”
The New England Council would like to congratulate Paul LeBlanc for receiving this prestigious award.
