Ten students were nominated for Outstanding Seniors at Founders’ Day.

At our signature Founders’ Day convocation at the Winona Campus, we honored five outstanding individuals who represent the ideals and philosophies of our founders and our Lasallian Catholic heritage. Saint Mary’s recognized the dedication and outstanding service of three faculty and staff members who have advanced our mission consistently over time with the Brother H. Charles Severin, FSC Award (Dr. Jeanne Minnerath, associate professor of biology) and Distinguished Lasallian Educator awards (Nick Winecke, head baseball coach, and Alison Block, assistant registrar, Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs).

Each year we recognize outstanding undergraduate male and female seniors who have demonstrated the ideals of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. Above all, these students have shown genuine concern for meeting the needs of others. The Outstanding Female and Male Senior awards were presented to Ena Moats, daughter of Steven and Julie Moats of Roland, Iowa, and Peter Hegland, son of Jim and Tanja Hegland of Saint Charles, Minn. Congratulations to Ena, Peter, and the other finalists: Amanda Baker, Maetzin Cruz-Reyes, Abigail Fangman, Acacia Wimmer, Aidan Goodman, Darvell Jones, Joseph Mari Busque Malinao, and Aaron Romportl.
