The Marymount Academy graduate was presented the award, which came with a $750 bursary, by Glenn Snyder on behalf of his late father, a well-known former west end businessman and municipal politician who played an instrumental role in getting a Major League Baseball team to come to Montreal in the 1960s. Gerald M. Snyder died at the Lakeshore General Hospital on Nov. 26, shortly before the award was presented. He was 87.
