5 nominees surprised by honor, though no one else in the state was
They also shared another — none could believe they were selected for the honors, which were presented Thursday night at the Palace Theatre.
The Forty Under 40 program "is to inspire young people to do the kinds of things that the people we are about to recognize have been doing for years," McQuaid said in opening the ceremony. Thursday's honorees "are really distinguished citizens of the state of New Hampshire, but we want to encourage them to do even more for the state."
Dupuis, an optometrist who resigned as mayor in 1975 during his second term to become the first president of Catholic Medical Center, said he would not be in a position to collect any awards for his service had it not been for the family supporting him.
Monier, who spent 20 years as the executive director of the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority before retiring in 2007 at the age of 67, said she was surprised at her selection, given the political and civic leaders she was being honored beside.
