RADNOR, Pa, (May 20, 2011) — Cabrini College, which for more than 50 years has provided students “an education of the heart,” received the prestigious Sister Josephine Tsuei Award at the Cabrini Mission Foundation’s Spirit of Cabrini awards dinner May 19 at New York’s Pierre Hotel.
The College, which is the only higher education institution sponsored by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (MSC), was honored for providing an education rich in academic excellence, leadership development, and a commitment to social justice.
Sister Josephine Tsuei, MSC, was a missionary, educator, and health care administrator. The award in her name is given annually to an organization or individual who has made a profound impact on others through an involvement in Cabrini programs and institutions.
“Sister Josephine Tsuei will always be remembered as someone who taught all those with whom she came in contact how to love and show an undaunted faith and constant hope,” said Sister Catherine Garry, MSC, provincial councilor. “Cabrini College starts with the premise that students have the ability to do something extraordinary with their lives through an education dedicated to academic excellence, leadership development, and a commitment to social justice.”
Established in 1998, the Cabrini Mission Foundation supports the MSC works of the Stella Maris Province (encompassing the United States, Australia, Africa, and the Philippines) through fundraising, endowment and donor programs.
