About Rudolph Giuliani:
A natural born leader, Rudolph W. Giuliani is considered by history to be one of the most successful mayors of New York City. On September 11, 2001, as America suffered its worst attack in its history, Mayor Giuliani was at ground zero and narrowly missed being crushed when the Towers fell. Mayor Giuliani immediately began leading the recovery of the city as it faced its darkest hour, achieving world-wide respect and earning the nickname “America’s Mayor.” Widely lauded for his steady hand during challenging times, Rudy was officially named “Person of the Year” by TIME magazine and presented with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Freedom Award. Since 9/11, Rudy Giuliani has continued to keep America safe by founding Giuliani Partners, providing professional services as a leader in emergency preparedness, public safety, leadership during crises, and financial management.
The Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson In Pursuit of Excellence Award and Gala dates back to 2005 when Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson announced their major gift to the school to build and support an educational environment that provides students an Education for Life. Since then the In Pursuit of Excellence Award has been given to outstanding community members or world leaders who demonstrate leadership, tireless efforts on behalf of our community or the world, philanthropic support, and high moral standards.
