Assumption Honors 12 with Crown and Shield Award

On Friday, May 14, Assumption College honored 12 members of the class of 2010 with the Crown and Shield award. The Crown and Shield Awards recognizes students who have distinguished themselves in the areas of leadership and service to the College throughout their four years.

The recipients of these awards have protected (shield) and furthered (crown) the interests of the student body and College in various areas of leadership and community service. The students were nominated by faculty, staff and administration at the College.

In addition, one student is chosen to receive the prestigious Fr. Emmanuel D’Alzon Most Distinguished Crown and Shield Award. This honor is named for the founder of the Assumptionists, Fr. Emmanuel D’Alzon, an educator who believed that his Assumptionist priests and brothers should perform the good works of four people. The recipient for the Fr. D’Alzon Most Distinguished Award is chosen for the profound and lasting impact she or he has made on the entire student body and College community. Two students may “tie” for this award, as was the case with this year’s selection of Thomas Benjamin Sleeper and Christina Marie Graziano.
