Recipient of Sister Xavier Ladrigan Excellence in Education Award Announced

Ursuline is proud to congratulate Religious Studies Faculty member Ms. Mary Beth Weller of Mt. Lookout, named the 2018 recipient of Ursuline’s Sister Xavier Ladrigan Excellence in Education Award at UA’s annual Faculty Recognition Dinner.

The Sister Xavier Ladrigan Award was inaugurated in 1992 to honor Sr. Xavier Ladrigan, OSU as she retired from Ursuline’s Board of Trustees. Sr. Xavier served as the Superior General of the Ursulines of Brown County and was largely responsible for Ursuline’s move to Blue Ash in 1970. She devoted her entire life to education. The award is presented each year to a deserving individual with the knowledge and great faith that her legacy will live on in those who demonstrate an acceptance of the challenges given to each of us.

This is the twelfth year Ms. Weller has taught religion at Ursuline Academy. Nominated by parents, students and fellow faculty, she was lauded especially for her commitment to inclusivity, fairness and supporting students in all areas of their lives.

In her remarks about Ms. Weller, Ursuline President Ms. Sharon Redmond shared comments from the many nominations. “Ms. Weller inspires and encourages the students, as well as colleagues, and is a wonderful example of living out the legacy of the Ursuline Sisters,” Ms. Redmond said. “Ms. Weller is not only an outstanding teacher, but also a patient and kind person with all students.”

With this recognition comes a cash prize, along with funding for professional development for the recipient.
