The prestigious “Spirit of St. Francis” award was presented to Mr. Brian S. Bennett, Vice President and General Manager of Lawrence Lexus. This honor is given to an individual/organization who reflects the philosophy of caring as embodied by St. Francis of Assisi. According to Jerry Jablonowski, President and CEO of St. Francis Medical Center “The Spirit of St. Francis recipient demonstrates, among other attributes, that each individual has a moral responsibility to the community, to give something back or as Brian says ‘Pay it Forward’. Brian Bennett validates this, not just in his commitment to St. Francis Medical Center, but to the community at large. We are honored to add the name of Brian S. Bennett to the prestigious list of ‘Spirit of St. Francis’ award winners,” says Jerry Jablonowski, President and CEO of St. Francis Medical Center.
