Wilmers to receive UB’s top honor

The University at Buffalo will present M&T Bank Corp. chairman and CEO Robert G. Wilmers with the Chancellor Charles P. Norton Medal, UB’s highest honor, during its commencement on Sunday.

UB said the medal is presented to a person who, in Norton’s words, “performed some great thing which is identified with Buffalo … a great civic or political act, a great book, a great work of art, a great scientific achievement or any other thing which, in itself, is truly great and ennobling, and which dignifies the performer and Buffalo in the eyes of the world.”

Wilmers has led M&T since 1983 and is also recognized for his civic leadership.
