College Renames Business School For Donor

EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) — Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg is honoring a late board member by renaming its business school for him.

Archbishop Edwin O’Brien of the Baltimore archdiocese and his retired predecessor, Cardinal William Keeler, are scheduled to preside Thursday over a Mass and a blessing ceremony for the Richard J. Bolte Sr. School of Business.

Bolte, of Moorestown, N.J., founded the Philadelphia-based global logistics company BDP International. He died in 2006.

The university announced in February that Bolte’s family had made a large donation to the business school.

The university says all seven of Bolte’s sons attended Mount St. Mary’s.
