Western Connecticut State University will recognize the president and CEO of Regional Hospice and Palliative Care in Danbury with the 2019 Macricostas Entrepreneur of the Year Award. University officials say Cynthia Roy has applied her entrepreneurial career exclusively to nonprofits, armed with the same drive and skills exhibited by successful business owners. Ancell School of Business dean Dr. David Martin says Roy's effort to do something never before achieved in Connecticut, will convince anyone that the skills and drive expressed by business entrepreneurs are the same needed to make nonprofits successful. She presented the 2017 Macricostas Lecture on “Entrepreneurship in the Nonprofit World,” at WCSU. The award will be presented on March 26th, at 11:30am at the Amber Room.
