John Sciaccotta To Be Honored With Fenwick High School's 2018 Accipiter Award


On May 18, 2018, Aronberg Goldgehn member John Sciaccotta will be honored with the prestigious Accipiter Award from his high school alma mater, Fenwick High School.

The Accipiter Award was first presented in 1997 as a way to honor members of the Fenwick community who have distinguished themselves in the legal profession. “Accipiter” is a Latin word meaning “hawk.” The award was named in honor of Fr. Joseph Hren, O.P., long time teacher of Latin at Fenwick High School. Fr. Hren often was known among students as The Hawk for his devotion to detail and accuracy and his love for Latin, the language of the Law.

The 2018 Accipiter Award Luncheon will take place on Friday, May 18, 2018, at the University Club of Chicago, 76 E. Monroe Street. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. with lunch to follow at 12 p.m.
