Martin Sbriglio of Shelton received an honorary doctor of humane letters degree from St. Vincent’s College in Bridgeport.

The degree was presented to him during graduation ceremonies to recognize his contributions to his profession and the community.

Sbriglio is a 1977 graduate of St. Vincent’s School of Nursing. He has served on the St. Vincent’s College board of trustees since 1997, and now is outgoing board chairman.

Three decades of scholarships

In 1982, the Sbriglio family created a full scholarship awarded each year to one qualifying senior nursing student. During the past 30 years, the family has given more than $200,000 in scholarships to nursing students.

This year, 198 students graduated from St. Vincent’s College, the largest class in the school’s 110-year  history.
