Posted June 5th, 2015

Prep Board Member and Villanova University President, Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, Ph.D., was recently awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor. The Medal of Honor is given to those who dedicate their life to community service and, according to the Villanova website, “preserve and celebrate the history, traditions, and values of their ancestry while exemplifying the values of the American way of life, and who are dedicated to creating a better world for us all.” Past recipients include an impressive list of U.S. Presidents and Nobel Prize winners.  Read more about Father Donohue and his accomplishments on the Villanova University website.

We congratulate Father Donohue for such an honorable accomplishment.
