Attorney Edgar Snyder received a 225th Anniversary Medallion from the University of Pittsburgh while hosting the Edgar M. Snyder Distinguished Visiting Scholar Program at the University. Only 19 out of 10,000 Pitt Law alumni have been honored with this prestigious award.
The 225th Anniversary Medallion recognizes Alums who have made outstanding contributions to their professional fields and who continue to contribute to the success of the University of Pittsburgh and its students. Medallions have traditionally been used in academia as a way of honoring special events and people.
The University's first medallion was created in 1987 to honor the Bicentennial. The Chancellor commissioned the creation of the 225th Medallion to celebrate 225 years of "Building Better Lives" through the work of Pitt alumni.
