Founders Day 2020 Award Recipients

Congratulations to all the 2020 Founders Day award recipients! 

Abiding by the governor’s stay-at-home order did not stop the Rosemont community from honoring students, faculty, and staff at the annual Founders Day awards. On Thursday, April 23, members of the Rosemont community gathered virtually to recognize the following individuals and groups. 

  • Rosemont Community Spirit Award Individual: Faith Byrne, Controller 
  • Rosemont Community Spirit Award Group: Residence Life 
    • The Community Spirit Awards recognize employees and groups that have consistently made significant contributions to serving the entire College community. Recipients will have reached out beyond the traditional definitions of their role. 
  • The Class of 1974 Spotlight Award: Dan Mason, Director of Information Technology 
  • Established in 2011, the Class of 1974 Spotlight Award is given annually at the College’s Founders’ Day celebration to recognize a staff member, administrator, or faculty member for going above and beyond what is expected when they thought that no one was looking. This employee has been "caught in the act" going to extraordinary lengths to serve the College community in a specific instance.
