St. Edward's University bestows awards to outstanding alumni during Reunion Weekend

St. Edward's University bestowed awards to outstanding alumni during Reunion Weekend, on Saturday, June 23, 2001. Unlike most colleges and universities whose alumni get together annually for a homecoming event, St. Edward's University convenes for Reunion Weekend every other year. This year, close to 400 alumni attended.

The alumni awards are a way to celebrate the achievements of individuals and the quality of a Holy Cross education. The University bestowed two "Alumni Achievement Awards" to J. Hollis Bone, '93, and Geronimo Rodriguez, '90; an "Honorary Alumnus Award" to Richard Kinsey, and four "Distinguished Alumni Awards" to Tom Ryan, '63, Victor Kramer, '61, Ed Olliges, '53, and Maurice Quigley, '50.

St. Edward's University is an independent Catholic liberal arts university of 3,800 students in Austin. It was founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
