Distinguished Teaching Award presented

The annual Holy Cross faculty awards were presented at a convocation on Sept. 17. The event honored the recipient of the 2002 Holy Cross Distinguished Teaching Award and the recipients of the Rev. Raymond J. Swords, S.J., Faculty Medal.

Stephen C. Ainlay, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the College, presented the Distinguished Teaching Award to Rev. Anthony J. Kuzniewski, S.J., professor of history.

A member of the Holy Cross faculty since 1974, Fr. Kuzniewski served as the chair of the history department from 1990-92. He earned his bachelor of arts degree from Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wis., his master’s and Ph.D. from Harvard, and master of divinity degree from the Jesuit School of Theology in Chicago (Loyola University). The first Jesuit to receive this award, Fr. Kuzniewski is the author of The College of the Holy Cross: One Hundred Fifty Years (1993) and Thy Honored Name: A History of The College of the Holy Cross, 1843-1994 (1999). He is also the author of Faith and Fatherland: The Polish Church War in Wisconsin, 1896-1918 (1981).

The Distinguished Teaching Award, which was established to recognize the dedicated faculty members at the College, carries with it a $1,000 honorarium. The Rev. Raymond J. Swords, S.J., Faculty Medal, named after the 28th president of the College, was designed to honor members of the faculty who have served at Holy Cross for 25 years.

Nine members of the Holy Cross faculty were recognized: Robert Garvey of the physics department, Nicolas Sanchez of the economics department, Edward Thompson of the sociology and anthropology department, Shirish Korde of the music department, Robert Cording of the English department, Richard Matlak of the Center for Interdisciplinary and Special Studies, William Rynders of the theatre department, Royce Singleton of the sociology and anthropology department, and Rev. William Reiser, S.J., of the religious studies department.
