"Sr. Maureen, you have been such an important part of this campus for the past 50 years," Sr. Carol said. "We can never thank you for the numerous ways you have contributed to the psychology department, the Integrative Studies Across Cultures (ISAC) program, our service learning program, our new faculty as their mentor and the countless other things that you have done to help form Holy Names University into a wonderful institution. In 1999, you were designated by the Society for the Teaching of Psychology as a PRT (Precious Resource in Teaching). For HNU, Maureen, you are our most precious resource. We thank you and we love you and we invite you forward to receive our applause."
