Graduation day at D'Youville College was not only special for the 650 students who received diplomas. It also served as a touching tribute to Sister Denise Roche, GNSH, who will retire after nearly  37 years as President of the College. At the Commencement Ceremony on May 21, Bishop Richard J. Malone presented her with The Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice medal, an award of the Catholic Church meaning "For Church and Pope" in Latin. The medal is given for distinguished service to the church by lay people and clergy. It's the highest medal that can be awarded by the Pope to non-ordained members of the church or laity.
