During Founder’s Week, there is a tradition of recognizing one male and one female student who possesses in remarkable ways the spirit of Saint Angela Merici. Angela Merici was a leader in great and small ways and touched the lives of many. She is responsible for founding the Ursuline Sisters whom she named after Saint Ursula. It was her humble wish that her company of followers not be named after herself. Angela attracted people from all walks of life; rich and poor, nobility and common folk, learned and uneducated. She is often noted for her hospitality, her healthy sense of self in relationship to God and others, her contemplative spirit while being involved in the world, and her ability to be a reconciler and peacemaker. Any member of the Brescia Family (Students, Faculty, Staff, Administrators) may nominate a Brescia student to receive the “Spirit of Angela Award.” To encourage nominations, the Founder’s Week committee has attempted to streamline the nomination form to make the nominating process as easy as possible for anyone who chooses to recommend a student for the award.
Founder’s Day Convocation is on January 27, 2022 at 10:30 AM. The two recipients for the Spirit of Angela awards will be recognized during this convocation. Nominations must be received by noon on November 19, 2021.
