In addition to the award and induction ceremony, this annual spring gala event included a celebratory reception hour followed by a three-course dinner complete with a guest speaker who demonstrates a connection to adult learners. The attendance and participation of past inductees, families, friends and an assortment of Villanova faculty and staff all contributed to make the evening a uniquely joyous occasion. The new inductees into ASL were: Anastasia Baynard Currigan, Rebecca Ann Kay, Emilie Daniele Laga, Diane O. McCullough, Penny Lynn Mest, Marlene Denise Musso, Rene Lee O’Connor, Mario Steven Salas, and Susan Ann Schwarzman. The Medallion Award recipients were: Karen A. Christie, Rebecca Ann Kay, Iesha E. Lewis-Crofoot, and Ken Shinzato. Maria Baranski, Full-Time Instructor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics was inducted as an honorary member and gave the keynote address while Brandon Alan Dorfman, Associate Director of Part-Time Studies was also inducted as an honorary member.
