Sister Jean to receive award tomorrow!

Remember Sister Jean? In case you forgot, she's been serving the Loyola University community for more than half a century and made National headlines as the biggest cheerleader for the Loyola University basketball team as they made their way to the NCAA Final Four. She also turned 99 years old this year and now she's receiving a big honor.  She'll be receiving the Illinois' 2018 Senior Hall of Fame award.

The announcement was made last night by the Illinois Department of Aging stating that Sister Jean has contributed greatly to education and have achieved "great achievements" in that area.  She'll receive her award Friday. 

Way to go!
