Even back in his Loyola College days, Richard Renaud (BComm 69) showed an entrepreneurial flair, managing the Warriors hockey team and running the sports ticket agency, among other endeavours. Those skills have come in handy for him since, helping Renaud become a leading Montreal business person, volunteer and philanthropist.

In honour of his contribution to the city and to Concordia, the vice-chair of the university’s board of governors received the prestigious Loyola Medal in front of 350 well-wishers at Montreal’s Windsor Hotel on Jan. 22. Among the guests at the dinner were Quebec Liberal Party leader Jean Charest, MNA for Notre-Dame-de-Grâce Russell Copeman, Montreal councillor for Loyola District Jeremy Searle, and Bishop Anthony Mancini.

The Loyola Medal, established in 1961, is given by Concordia every two years to someone whose “character, philosophy and contribution have enriched the heritage of Canada and humanity.”

Previous winners are Governor-General Georges Vanier (L BA 06), Cardinal Paul-Émile Léger, Jean Drapeau, Arthur Mayne, Bernard Lonergan, S.J., Thérèse Casgrain, Hans Selye, Jacques Genest, Maureen Forrester, Donald McNaughton (L attendee 49), Jean Béliveau, Oscar Peterson and Jacques Ménard (L BComm 67).
