Service Award, and Jeno Paulucci will be awarded an honorary Doctor of
Laws degree for public service. From their humble roots in Northeastern
Minnesota, the Pauluccis have created and have built more than 50 companies
and organizations worldwide, which led to economic opportunities for thousands
of workers. Over the years, Jeno and Lois Paulucci have quietly helped
hundreds of people when faced with personal hardships, from providing
transportation for seeking medical care to financial help during a crisis.
