Philanthropists Honored At Misericordia Event
The Misericordia University Board of Trustees honored the philanthropy and leadership of John C. Metz Sr. and the late Frank M. Henry by presenting them with the Founders Medal during the annual Trustee Associates Gala at the Beaumont Inn on Saturday. The Founders Medal is one of the highest honors bestowed by Misericordia, as the trustees award it only when merited. Trustee Marjorie Henry Marquart ’85 and Scott E. Henry accepted the award on behalf of their family and father, who passed away in June. Metz, who retired from the board in June, accepted the award with his family by his side. Frank Henry was the chairperson emeritus of Martz Group in Wilkes-Barre. He had guided and grown the business as CEO since 1964. Metz, executive chairperson of Metz Culinary Management, has been a stalwart member of the Misericordia community for many years, serving the institution since 1988 as a trustee and continuing in his new role as trustee emeritus.
