  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) December 14, 2010 - New England Wholesale food distributor AGAR, product specialist for independent restaurants, retailers and other food service providers, Chairman Alan Bressler, recently received the Distinguished Graduate Award from his alma mater, Boston Latin School.

    Bressler's commitment to his family and his community was the trademark that made him stand out as an obvious candidate for the award. He took over his father's business, AGAR Supply, as president and CEO in 1968 after graduating from Boston University and proceeded to grow the company into the largest independent food distributor in New England. He is also involved with many Boston institutions such as The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Symphony Orchestra, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

    Bressler has been engaged with the school for many years, having served as a member of the Development Committee since 2004 and a member of the Board of Trustees from 2003 to 2009. He and his wife Lorraine also served together as honorary co-chairs for the celebrations marking the 375th anniversary of Boston Latin School.

    Each year the award is given to an individual who exemplifies the school's motto of sumus primi. Nominees are evaluated on these three criteria: significant contribution to the community in which he or she lives, substantial life achievement in career or community, and engagement in activities engendering pride on the part of alumni of BLS.
