Neumann University president Rosalie Mirenda has been selected to receive the 2012 Catholic Philopatrian Literary Institute’s Sourin Award.
The award is designed to recognize individuals who have followed the example of Father Edward Sourin, founder of the Literary Institute, in dedicating their lives to the day-to-day implementation of the Catholic faith in their business, in their family lives, and in their social activities.
Past recipients of the Award include Justin Cardinal Rigali, Senator Rick Santorum and his wife Karen, Timothy Flanagan, and Cardinal John P. Foley.
Mirenda serves on several boards and organizations, including the archdiocesan Board of Education, Drexel Neumann Academy and the Association of Franciscan Colleges and Universities. She received the Papal Honor of the Cross Pro Ecclesiae from the Vatican, and awards from the Catholic Leadership Institute, the Cathedral of Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul (Keys and Sword Award), and other organizations.
Mirenda will receive the award April 19, 2012.
