Favazza, President of Saint Anselm College. Kate (Leidemer) Mahan ’02, the newly elected President of the Alumni Council, presented the awards.

“Each year, as we welcome so many Anselmians home to our campus, we have the great pleasure of recognizing individuals who represent, each in his or her own remarkable way, the values we cherish and teach at Saint Anselm College,” shared Kate Mahan ’02. “Each of these men and women, no matter their particular professions or circumstances, has found a way to live in which they put the needs of others before their own. They make us all proud to be part of Saint Anselm’s living legacy of faith and sacrifice.”
