The South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce honored St. Thomas University president Monsignor Franklyn Casale with the Golden Eagle Award for his 22 years of leadership and service at the college.

The Golden Eagle Award is the chamber’s most prestigious award and recognized Casale during its annual installation gala last month. 

Casale has served as president of STU since 1994, and prior to joining STU, he was the vicar general, chancellor and moderator of the Curia of the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey, where he also served as a member of the Board of Trustees at Seton Hall University. 

His leadership positions in higher education associations include the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Colleges, where he served as vice chair; Governing Board, Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities; President’s Council of Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida; Florida Association of Colleges and Universities; and Haiti-Tech, an organization he helped found that organizes and maintains a vocational/technical school in Haiti and educates over 700 students annually.  

Casale is also chair of the Association of Catholic College and Universities (ACCU).
