Five employees of the College of the Holy Cross have received 2012 Claire B. Burns Awards. The awards program, now in its 15th year, was established and endowed in 1997 by Donal J. Burns ’49 in honor of his wife, Claire, an alumna of the Class of 1990, who passed away in November of 2010. The awards are presented annually to non-exempt employees of the College, currently working or retired, who in the fulfillment of their responsibilities have demonstrated, fostered, and promoted the spirit of family, which is a treasured characteristic of the Holy Cross Community.

The recipients, all from the Worcester area, were honored at a banquet on March 12.  They are:

June M. Caron, a resident of North Oxford, has worked in physical plant administration for the last 24 years.

Christina M. Fairbanks, a resident of Auburn, has worked in dining services for the last eight years.

Linda L. MacLellan, a resident of Worcester, has worked in physical plant/environmental services for the last six years.

Stephanie A. Outerson, a resident of Auburn, has worked in academic services for the last eight years.

Linda C. Paquette, a resident of Worcester, has worked in the bookstore for last 19 years.

As part of the Claire B. Burns Awards Program, Robert H. Holley, Jr., an employee in physical plant/environmental services, received The Rev. William J. O’Halloran, S.J., Award. A resident of Cherry Valley, Holley has worked at the College for seven years.  The award he received was established to honor Fr. O’Halloran’s long years of service to the College, from 1963-2008; his closeness to non-exempt employees; and his contributions to the Claire B. Burns Employee Award Program. During his tenure with the College, Fr. O’Halloran served as chair of the psychology department, assistant chaplain, rector of the Jesuit Community, trustee, vice president of the College, and special assistant to the president.

In addition, 40 employees were recognized for perfect attendance over the past year, and 115 employees were recognized for years of service to the College.

On June 23, 20 employees who have worked at Holy Cross for 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years will be honored at the College’s 25+ Years Awards Ceremony.
