ExcellenceNorth Hosts Community Excellence Awards

ExcellenceNorth Alliance (ENA) will host its inaugural Sylvio Dupuis “Community Excellence Award” event to recognize communities that have achieved tangible benefits in areas including economic development, quality of life, public health and education. 

Named after the former Manchester Mayor, community leader, volunteer, and philanthropist, this annual award reflects Dr. Dupuis’ lifelong work to improve communities for the benefit of citizens and families.  In addition to recognizing communities, the goal is to encourage other communities in New Hampshire to follow suit.   

 “From the development of arts and education to political, economic and non-profit project leadership and development, Dr. Dupuis epitomizes the effort to bring and sustain excellence in his community,” explains Tom Raffio, President & CEO of Northeast Delta Dental and ENA Chairperson.

“I am deeply honored to have this award named after me.  My efforts in the greater Manchester community and throughout the state are the result of deeply-instilled beliefs taught to me by my family and peers over many years.” says Dr. Dupuis, namesake of the new award.  “We all play a role in the success of our communities, and I hope this process develops shared best practices that benefit countless cities, towns, neighborhoods, and regions.”
