Crestron Celebrates Holidays With Donation to Children’s Hospital and Excellence in Teaching Award

Crestron Electronics, Inc., global leader in communication and control technologies has donated an Adagio® home theater system to Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Israel as a Hanukah gift to the facility. Crestron also awarded Professor Yervant Terzian of Cornell University’s Astronomy Department with the Summum Bonum Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Schneider Children’s Medical Center is the only highly specialized medical care center of its kind in Israel and the Middle East. The hospital provides modern and the most complex medical services all under one roof, and represents a new era in Pediatric Medicine in Israel due to its high standards of medical excellence. Crestron donated an Adagio home entertainment system and 50-inch LCD TV to the hospital. The award-winning brand offers simplicity, ease of use and affordability. “Crestron is honored to give Schneider Children’s Medical Center a Hanukah present for their patients to look forward to,” said Crestron Founder and President, George Feldstein. “We hope that our donation will make their time at Schneider more comfortable.”
Feldstein presented Professor Terzian with a commemorative plaque and cash prize during the blue ribbon end of semester holiday event, recognizing Terzian for his long-term commitment to his students and the science of Astronomy. Latin for “highest good,” Summum Bonum is an expression used in philosophy to describe the supreme good in which all moral values are defined to provide the greatest happiness for the greatest number. “We are thrilled to recognize Professor Terzian with this outstanding teaching award,” said Crestron Founder and President, George Feldstein. “Teaching is a force multiplier – the good and the inspiration a teacher offers goes well beyond anything he can possibly do himself.” 
Crestron is committed to innovation through education and created the Summum Bonum Award of Excellence in Teaching to celebrate passionate teachers. The award is given twice a year to deserving teachers and recognizes the crucial role that mentoring plays in the academic and personal development of students.
