The Nominee Reception
All nominees who submit a completed application will become a member of the Celebration of Excellence Class of 2016. A Nominee Reception for this year’s class will be held several weeks prior to the Celebration of Excellence. This reception is a special opportunity for all members of the current class to socialize and celebrate their collective success. Finalists in each of the award categories will be notified prior to the Celebration of Excellence.
On October 2, 2014, Enterprise Bank was honored to host the Celebration of Excellence Class of 2014 Reception. On a night dedicated to celebrating excellence in our community, how appropriate it was to have as keynote speaker Commissioner Ed Davis, a law enforcement professional who has personified community service every day of his 35-year career, from his early days as a Lowell Police patrolman to his service as Boston’s 40th Police Commissioner.
Those in attendance were deeply moved by Commissioner Davis’ reflection on 2013’s tragic Boston Marathon bombing, during which he was hailed for his professionalism and decisive leadership, uniting citizens and creating a sense of community that far transcended the borders of Boston.
