Italian-American group to honor DiNardo
The Italian-American Cultural & Heritage Society of Washington County will honor Rudolph Domenic DiNardo Jr. with its distinguished citizen award at the group’s annual banquet May 19 at Hilton Garden Inn at Southpointe.
DiNardo graduated from Cecil High School and the University of Pittsburgh. After college, he served in the military and then accepted employment at MAC Plastics. At MAC, with the assistance of his three brothers, he was able to build the business from a one-machine operation to the fifth-largest industrial blow molder in North America. He ultimately became president and CEO. He currently owns Primo Cucina Italiana Restaurant with wife, Paulette. They have four children and seven grandchildren.
Also at the banquet, Jocelyn F. Benson will be honored as a featured guest. A graduate of Peters Township High School, Benson is dean of Wayne State University Law School and president of the Military Spouses of Michigan.
