Linda Dianto, a graduate of Staten Island Community College and Richmond College (institutions that later merged to form the College of Staten Island), was recently featured in The Staten Island Advance as the forthcoming recipient of the Louis R. Miller Business Leadership Award, which she will receive in the Not-for-Profit Businessperson category. The awards, which are presented by the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce and the Staten Island Advance, honor the memory of Louis R. Miller, a businessman and West Brighton resident who was also a community leader.

Dianto, the Executive Director of The Lighthouse Museum on Staten Island, is also slated to be honored at CSI’s Spring Into Giving event at the Richmond County Country Club on April 18, 2024.

In The Staten Island Advance feature, written by Advance reporter Danielle Wiseman, Dianto shed light on the passion behind the installation of the Lighthouse Museum, a project deemed “dead in the water” until Dianto took over as Chairperson. The piece covers her lifelong commitment to community service and advocacy, and her tireless work towards curating and expanding the museum on Staten Island.
