St. Joseph’s College honored one alumna and two current students for their service to the College at this year’s Honors Convocation, held on October 10 on the Long Island Campus.
Laurie Lanteri-Wolfe ’03 received the Saint Catherine Medal, an annual award that honors an individual, chosen by faculty, who represents the high ideals of a Catholic college education. Now an active member of the St. Joseph’s College Alumni Association, Lanteri-Wolfe served as an executive member of the Campus Activities Board while earning a B.S. in Business Administration at the Long Island Campus. She currently works as a wellness program manager at the Cove Health Systems, and is the independent founding designer of Mialisia Jewelry.
“Since 2001, the College has been awarding the Saint Catherine Medal to alumni who have demonstrated leadership and service,” said Paige Napoli Carbone ’02, SJC’s director of alumni relations. “We are so excited to present the award this year to Laurie Lanteri-Wolfe. Laurie was a leader during her days at SJC and continues to be a leader in her field today.”
Also recognized at the Honors Convocation were seniors Carl Baurle III ’14 and Nina Franza ’14, who each received the Thomas J. Wendt ’88 Alumni Scholarship. An alumnus and former employee of the College, Wendt was dedicated to
volunteerism and charitable causes. After his passing in 2004, SJC established a memorial scholarship in his name to benefit students who play an active part in the College and the surrounding community.
Baurle, a mathematics and computer science major, is treasurer of the Student Government Association. Franza, a psychology major, is an executive member of the Campus Activities Board, and spent three weeks studying abroad last summer at the University of Oxford’s St. Hilda’s College, with students and faculty from SJC as part of an intellectual study program.
