ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — Has someone in the St. Bonaventure community made your experience better? Do you feel that someone’s Franciscan spirit goes unrecognized?
The Annual Fr. Joe Doino, O.F.M., Honors and Awards Committee and the Student Government Association are seeking nominations of individuals and groups at St. Bonaventure University who have made significant contributions to the University community during the past year.
Nominations are sought for 10 awards that will be presented at the Spring Honors and Awards Ceremony slated for 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, in The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. The annual ceremony will also celebrate SBU personnel marking employment anniversaries and 2013 Faculty Award recipients.
The Doino Award categories include: University Mission Volunteer of the Year; Adviser/Moderator of the Year; Program of the Year; Community Service Award; Staff Person of the Year; Organization/Club of the Year; Student Leader of the Year; Student Life Award; Heather Lohr SGA Member of the Year; and the Faculty Appreciation Award. Nominations can be by any member of the university community and full descriptions of the award categories are available here on mysbu.
The awards’ namesake, Fr. Joe Doino, was a much beloved friar who was known for his practical jokes, love of tennis, and dedication as the SGA adviser. A professor, scholar, musician, preacher and priest, Fr. Joe became the first faculty member to receive the Faculty Appreciation Award posthumously. Fr. Joe, who died in 1994 at the age of 70, served as the director of Franciscan novices before starting his teaching career at St. Bonaventure in 1986. Fr. Joe was the adviser to Student Government, serving on the Student Government Awards Committee since its inception. The Honors and Awards Ceremony was renamed after Fr. Joe in 1995, honoring his commitment to the University community.
