Alumni Distinguished Professor Hennessy

Last night, Dr. Susie Hennessy, chairperson of EML and Professor of French, was recognized as Alumni Distinguished Professor at the Alumni Association banquet that makes up the Homecoming Weekend festivities.

Dr. Hennessy's former students and modern languages alumni Joshua Baldwin, Crystal Crawford, Donnie Hughes and Barbara Timothe joined modern language faculty members Claudine Evans and Eduardo Castilla-Ortiz in presenting the award during the ceremony. The St. Joseph News-Press
covered the event, reporting Dr. Hennessy as saying “I feel really humbled for being singled out for doing a job I love,” she said. Teaching French, she added, “is sharing what I love. The students are the ones that deserve the recognition.”

Dr. Hennessy joins EML faculty Dr. Elizabeth Sawin (1988), Dr. Isabel Sparks (1989), Dr. Jeanie Crain (1997), and Dr. Jane Frick (2011) as a recipient of this prestigious award.
