Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) has named Sean A. Boyle, president of Boyle Construction, Inc., as the 2018 recipient of the Collegiate Award of Distinction, which is determined each year by the college’s Board of Trustees.

The award was presented to Boyle, honorary chair of the 25th annual LCCC Foundation Golf Classic, at Lehigh Country Club during the golf classic’s dinner Aug. 27.

The LCCC Board of Trustees selects the Collegiate Award of Distinction to recognize a person or organization for contributions to the community, service and dedication in support of education, and to honor those who have demonstrated their commitment to the college and its students.

“Sean demonstrates every day the impact an individual can make on his community,” said LCCC president Dr. Ann D. Bieber.

“The fact that his father Tony founded the LCCC Foundation golf tournament 25 years ago, and that Sean has worked so hard this year to grow donations in support of student scholarships shows his commitment to LCCC and the community at large. This award reflects Sean’s selfless approach to ensuring his community continues to grow and improve,” said Bieber.

Since 1996, Boyle has served as president of Boyle Construction, Inc., which has become a leader in community involvement by allocating staff and donations to many local non-profit organizations.

Boyle is a member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce Board of Governors and serves on the golf tournament committee for Easter Seals of Eastern Pennsylvania and the American Diabetes Association. In addition, he serves on the board of directors for the American Diabetes Association, the executive board for March of Dimes and the Bethlehem Chamber Small Business Council. He is a 1995 graduate of Leadership Lehigh Valley.

His father, Tony Boyle, is a 1970 graduate of LCCC and was the founder of the golf tournament 25 years ago. The younger Boyle is carrying on his father’s legacy as chair of the 2018 tournament.
