Margaret Sullivan '75 Receives Charging Buffalo Award

On September 27, 2017, the 39th Annual Buffalo Nite in Washington, D.C. honored Nardin alumna Margaret Sullivan '75 with the Charging Buffalo Award.

This annual celebration promotes Buffalo - D.C. connections and the Charging Buffalo Award honors people whose thriving careers connect Buffalo and the nation's capitol. Sullivan is known for her career of journalistic excellence and is currently the media columnist for The Washington Post, after thirteen years leading The Buffalo News and four years at the New York Times.

"Margaret was selected the Charging Buffalo recipient based on her many 'firsts,'" said Susan Unger, Buffalo Director of the New York State Society. "At The Buffalo News, she was the first female editor, after also being the first female managing editor, and at The New York Times she became their first female public editor."

Past winners of the Charging Buffalo award include the late Tim Russert, Wolf Blitzer, and Nardin alumna Kim Keenan '79.

"My first thought was that I was honored, and my second thought was that it was the second year in a row that a Nardin Academy graduate won the award," Sullivan said. "So I was proud of my alma mater."

The Nardin Academy community is proud of you, Margaret Sullivan!
