Sandy McDonnell CollageThe world lost a great leader when CEP’s co-founder and Chairman Emeritus Sanford N. McDonnell passed away in March. The overwhelming outpour of emotions from those who knew him and whose lives he had touched inspired CEP to archive the sentiments and prepare a book of memories for the McDonnell family. Our Vice President, Joe Mazzola, shared his thoughts in a blog post shortly after Sandy’s passing.

Sandy’s commitment to character education was unparallelled, and his leadership will not be forgotten. This post is to share some of the comments prepared by members of the CEP family to honor Sandy, photos to commemorate him, and a chance to share your thoughts.
