This year's Renaissance Award went to Sister Stephanie Blaszczynski, C.R.'55 who has served the Resurrection school community for the past 65 years, as former Teacher, former Principal, former President, and currently as a board and committee member. The Charity & Truth Award was presented to Bernard Kelly, on behalf of his wife Dr. Christine Wasielewski Kelly'59. Christine was a member of the faculty at Resurrection, served in Administration, and founded the Resurrection Practicum Job Shadowing Program. Christine also served as a member of the faculty at Dominican University until December of 2007 just three months before she passed away.
Special thanks go to two alumnae who worked very hard to make the gala a great success: Peggy Kusinski'81, the Honorary Chair and MC for the Gala and Gina Lavorata O'Hehir'86 who with her husband Brian served as the Chair Couple for the Gala. Peggy and Gina are outstanding women, and role models of how women can successfully balance commitment to family, church, community and career.
