Once a year, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur recognize our good friends who are committed to our mission. We also present the Educating for Life and Hearts as Wide as the World Awards.
The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur established the Educating for Life Award in 2004 to mark the congregation’s 200th anniversary, and to acknowledge the blessings of women and men who share our commitment to education in their own exceptional ways. We are honored to present the 2012 Educating for Life Award to Thomas J. Klinedinst, Jr.
Our foundress, St. Julie, understood that wisdom and compassion reside in the heart, not the head. She knew, as well, that an open heart sees God's goodness everywhere. That is why she asked her Sisters of have hearts as wide as the world. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur established the Hearts as Wide as the World Award to recognize friends who share our commitment to St. Julie's challenge to respond to the needs of all, without regard for boundaries or restructions. We are honored to present the 2012 Hearts as Wide as the World Award to Dr. Mike Gable.
