On Thursday evening, October 11th, Shepherds, a mentoring and scholarship non-profit based in Bridgeport, will honor two of its most experienced and dedicated mentors, Tammy Taylor of Darien and Greg Dillon of North Haven, at its gala at The Inn at Longshore in Westport.
Mentors, students and family members along with NDWH staff, gathered on January 24th in the Maureen and George J. Collins ’58 Auditorium at Notre Dame High School to celebrate the role of Shepherds mentors in students’ lives.
Congratulations to the inspiring Mr. Gregory B. Dillon ’74 who will be inducted tonight as one of seven of 2017’s Knights of Honor at Notre Dame High School. In addition to mentoring 8 young men through Shepherds at his beloved alma mater, Greg is a former law enforcement and business professional.
