Hibernian member receives recognition for achievements
WARREN -- The Sean MacBride Division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in Trumbull County presented the Commodore John Barry Medal to Mike Mogg Sr. of Hubbard in recognition of his outstanding academic, cultural and civic achievements.
The award ceremony, which took place Dec. 14, was conducted by Joseph Casey, financial secretary and AOH Ohio State Board chairman of missions and charities.
Mogg has been active with the AOH local and state boards and serves as division president. He has led the annual division blood drive and golf outings, and also serves as director with the Ohio State Board.
The AOH in America is an Irish-Catholic men's organization that was founded in 1836 in New York and now has a membership of more than 250,000 nationally. The Trumbull County division was established in 1997 and named for Sean MacBride, a founder of Amnesty International and an Irish historian.
In March, the division will hold an annual scholarship breakfast, at which three 1,000 cash scholarships will be presented to Trumbull County high school seniors for their essays on "Why Does Everyone Want to be Irish on St. Patrick's Day?"
