In a dedication ceremony on Sunday, March 22, 2015, Adelphi’s Alumni House was named the Angello Alumni House in honor of a generous $2.5 million commitment from Phyllis and Frank ’77 Angello. The unrestricted gift will be used by the board of trustees and President Robert A. Scott to support University priorities such as student scholarships and campus enhancements.

Willumstad School of Business, Frank Angello is the former chief financial officer of the Treasury and Securities Services Division of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and former chief financial officer of Lighthouse International. He has served as an Adelphi trustee since 2007 and is currently secretary of the board.

Phyllis Angello held a variety of executive and administrative positions during her 37-year career with the Internal Revenue Service. She currently serves on the corporate advisory board of Abilities, Inc. at The Viscardi Center.

“Phyllis and I are very happy that the Angello name will be forever linked with Adelphi,” Frank Angello said. “It demonstrates our commitment to scholarship, the importance of scholarship in our own lives and our strong belief that scholarships matter to future generations of Adelphi students.

The Angellos—parents of Peter Angello ’11 and previous members of Adelphi’s Parents Council—were honored at Adelphi’s 15th Annual President’s Gala. Active in their community, they have also held leadership roles in their parish.
