This award annually honors a nonexempt (hourly) staff member who lives and promotes the mission of the University of St. Thomas: “Inspired by Catholic intellectual tradition, the University of St. Thomas educates students to be morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely and work skillfully to advance the common good.”
