Dr. Richard Saccone and his wife, Yong, center, were presented with a plaque by Dr. Gary M. Quinlivan, left, dean of the Saint Vincent College Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics and Government, and Dr. Bradley C.S. Watson, right, professor of politics and the Philip M. McKenna Chair of American and Western Political Thought at Saint Vincent College, recognizing the Saccones and their sons, Nick and Matthew, for their donation which made possible a display on the third floor of the Aurelius Hall home of the McKenna School. The display features paintings, drawings and artifacts which highlight and recognize the significance of international cultures and the relationship of God to the nation’s founding and government. Exhibits highlighting the founding fathers, constitution and the inclusion of God in government rotate every semester. The current exhibit includes a flag flown over George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon and the first coins printed with “In God We Trust” in 1856. Dr. Saccone is a lecturer in politics at Saint Vincent and a Pennsylvania State Representative for the 39th District (Allegheny and Washington Counties). The public is welcome to view the exhibit anytime.
