For his tireless devotion to Hilbert College, and his spirit with the gift of time, talent and
treasure to ensure the success of our students, faculty and staff – we proudly recognize Russell A. Corigliano with the 2021 Hilbert College Medal.
Russell A. Corigliano first joined the Hilbert Board of Trustees in May 2012, but his relationship with Hilbert College goes back to 1998. From that first connection, through a gift to a College event, he immersed himself in supporting the institution both personally and through his company, Rosina Food Products. He proudly saw his daughter, Andrea Corigliano Augustyn, graduate from Hilbert in 2010, and then go on to serve on the Hilbert Alumni Board in 2015-16. His nephew, Matthew Corigliano, also graduated from Hilbert in 2015.
His service to the Board of Trustees, which will end in May 2021, exemplifies Russ’ dedication and leadership. In addition to extraordinary charitable support, both personally and from his business, he has ably chaired or served on almost every Board committee, including currently as Chair of the Trustees Committee, which oversees the important work of identifying and recruiting community and business leaders for Board service.
