Bishop Loverde receives Seton Award from NCEA

First slide

Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde was presented a 2015 St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Award by the National Catholic Educational Association at the Seton Awards Gala in Washington Oct. 5.

The Seton Award is presented annually to individuals and organizations whose support and service assists Catholic education. In addition, award recipients have a scholarship presented in their honor to a Catholic school student in their local community.

The NCEA commended Bishop Loverde, who "has dedicated himself and steered the diocese to focus on education, charity and addressing the multicultural needs of our area." A Seton scholarship was presented to Meredith Cripe, a 2015 graduate in the Options Program at Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax.
