Angela Ciminello Receives the 2017 Servant Leadership Award
Angela Ciminello, Wartburg Vice President of Development and Marketing, recently received the 2017 Servant Leadership Award from the Mount Vernon Heights Congregational Church at their 120th Annual Anniversary Gala. Rev. Troy P. DeCohen, senior pastor, presented Ms. Ciminello with this prestigious honor in appreciation of her partnership in providing student internships through Wartburg.
“Congratulations on a well deserved honor, a servant leader is something we all aspire to be. Angela’s recognition makes a positive statement to the community about who she is and what she represents,” said David J. Gentner, Wartburg President and CEO.
Ms. Ciminello joined Wartburg, a premier provider of senior residential housing and healthcare services located in Mount Vernon, NY, in 2014. Since then, she has expanded Wartburg’s presence by partnering with local senior and healthcare centers, corporations and individuals to forward Wartburg’s mission of caring for the oldest members of the community.
During Ms. Ciminello’s tenure, and after a 10 year hiatus, Wartburg hosted its historic Fall Festival again and brought back the Car Show, held each summer on Wartburg’s beautiful 34-acre campus. In celebration of Wartburg’s 150th anniversary in 2016, Ms. Ciminello led a year-long celebration of the organization’s history first as The Warburg Orphans’ Farm School and now a senior care provider.
In 2016, Ms. Ciminello was named one of 914 Inc. Magazine’s “Women in Business” honoring “Westchester’s most powerful executives, entrepreneurs, and government and nonprofit leaders”
for demonstrating a consistent level of success in her field and making a lasting impact on the economy and her community, according to the criteria. She was also recently recognized in Marquis’s Who’s Who in America.
A philanthropist in her own right, Ms. Ciminello is a board member for the Plagiocare Foundation, the Mount Vernon Parks Conservancy and the Theodore D. Young Community Center Board in Greenburgh, NY. Ms. Ciminello received both her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science degrees from Iona College, New Rochelle, NY.
