A special part of the program was the presentation of two of the college’s highest honors: The Ancilla Award and the Sister Mary Dolores Outstanding Alumni Award. This year we are proud to announce that John Chandler received the Ancilla Award. Mr. Chandler was born in Chicago and his family has had a presence in Donaldson, Marshall County, for six generations. He serves as vice-president of Saint Ignatius College Prep in Chicago. He was a member of the Ancilla College Board of Trustees from 2003-2013 and serves as board chairman from 2007-2013. The Sister Mary Dolores Outstanding Alumni Award was presented to Randall Danielson (’77). Mr. Danielson is the owner of Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home in Plymouth and is a current member of the Ancilla College Board of Trustees, having served since 2006.
Funds raised from this event help provide need-based grants and scholarships to worthy students to attend Ancilla College, who otherwise might not be able. During the 2014-15 school year, 92% of our students received financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships or awards. In addition, the college spent more than $1 million of its own resources to help students with their tuition and other costs of education. Your support of this event would be very much appreciated. At last year’s event, nearly $33,000 was raised to help our students.
