Holy Cross takes justifiable pride in its clearly articulated and widely “lived” mission — a mission that is not only integrated into daily life on the campus but also into the professional and personal lives of students long after they graduate.

Each year, in an effort to recognize graduates who have lived out the Holy Cross mission, the College honors several outstanding alumni with the Sanctae Crucis Award, the highest non-degree recognition bestowed  on an alumnus or alumna.

On May 3, the following five alumni were presented with the award at an elegant ceremony in the Hogan Campus Center Ballroom: Richard F. Connolly, Jr. ’61, philanthropist, financial advisor at Morgan Stanley; Kara C. Dallman ’87, retired naval commander, director of business development at United Through Reading; Peter J. Deckers, M.D., ’62, surgeon, teacher, and former dean of the University of Connecticut’s School of Medicine; Mary Cahoon McGinnity ’77, executive director of the Ignatian Volunteer Corps; Katherine T. Volk ’00, advocate for the homeless, victims of violence and those dealing with trauma, managing director of t3 (think.teach.transform) and a senior associate at the Center for Social Innovation.

Watch the video to hear directly from the honorees and to find out more about their  work and how Holy Cross shaped them.
