At the “Celebrating a Lifetime of Leadership and Achievements” event, Westchester County Association (WCA) President & CEO Bill Mooney shared some surprising and inspiring stories about his life experiences that prepared him to serve as President & CEO of the Westchester County Association — along with some great insights on what leadership is — and what it is not.
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo recognized Mooney’s commitment to others by presenting him with the Excelsior Medal, the state’s highest honor for public service. “Guided by the principles of the Good Book, Bill believes that we were put on this earth for a purpose and that purpose goes beyond one’s self — to serve one’s family, to serve one’s community, to serve the public good,” said Cuomo. “Bill Mooney not only pulled himself up, but he has pulled us all up with him. There can be no greater accomplishment, my friend.”
