Saint Mary’s presented awards to His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, a College faculty member, a staff member, and two outstanding seniors at its Founders’ Day celebration March 24. An honorary doctorate in pastoral ministry was presented to His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York. Cardinal Dolan has, since his ordination 40 years ago, exemplified a life of service to the Catholic Church as priest, pastor, educator, and shepherd.
Dr. Paul Weiner, professor of mathematics, computer science, and statistics at Saint Mary’s, received the 2015 Brother Charles H. Severin, FSC, College Faculty Award. This award is bestowed semi-annually on a College faculty member who demonstrates sustained excellence in teaching, contributes to the university outside of the classroom, builds community by serving as a model of the Lasallian spirit, and is a creative, passionate, and inspiring teacher.
Sarah Wanger (who received her undergraduate degree from Saint Mary’s in 2004 and her master’s in 2011) received the 2015 Distinguished Lasallian Educator award. Wanger serves as the director of outreach for the School of Education at the Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs. This award recognizes Wanger for a life of faith and service that exemplifies the ideals of Saint John Baptist de La Salle.
