Dozens of Long Island’s most influential leaders and nearly 400 of their supporters gathered last Thursday to toast the 2018 Long Island Press Power List honorees at Leonard’s Palazzo in Great Neck.

SUNY Old Westbury President Calvin O. Butts, III was named once again to the Power List, now in its 16th year of honoring the region’s most powerful people, from the policy shapers in the political arena hold away over local quality of life to the rainmakers in the business world that create jobs and wealth.  The Long Island Power List is created annually by the Long Island Press.

President Butts was included in the “Mind Shapers” category for his work.
