Loyola’s 98-year-old men’s basketball team chaplain Sister Jean was recognized for not letting age get in the way of her life’s work.
Sister Jean received the first ever Trailblazer Award from the group The Village Chicago.
Executive Director Dianne Campbell described Sister Jean as the “North Star” for everyone who wants to “maximize the dividend of a long life.”
It’s only appropriate that Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt be the first to receive this award, since she was the person who inspired it. Click here to read the article and view footage of Sister Jean receiving her award.
