RADNOR, Pa. (Nov. 22, 2016) – On Nov. 14, Molly Seaman (’18) of Arvada, CO, was honored for her contribution in leadership and service to the community.
Seaman received the Charles A. Mastronardi Award for Service and Leadership during Cabrini Day, an annual event that celebrates Cabrini University’s heritage and mission while focusing on a current social issue. This year’s daylong schedule of events focused on the theme Connecting Through Culture, celebrating multiculturalism through events including student presentations, keynote speaker Javier Ávila, and a campus walk for social change.
A senior Digital Communication and Social Media major at Cabrini, Seaman has served as Managing Editor of the student newspaper The Loquitur and President of the Catholic Relief Services student ambassador chapter at Cabrini. She also traveled to San Lucas Guatemala for a weeklong immersion trip and has worked as an undergraduate teaching assistant to help train students to lobby on Capitol Hill.
The Mastronardi Award is an endowed scholarship established by Margaret Mastronardi (’61), a member of Cabrini’s first graduating class, and her sister, Ruth Mastronardi Baldovin (’67). Since 1982, the Mastronardi Foundation has underwritten scholarships for more than 100 students at Cabrini.
