Saint Vincent College honored three students with James D. Bendel Awards for demonstrated commitment to working with vulnerable populations at an invitational luncheon on Sept. 27 at the Fred M. Rogers Center at Saint Vincent College. The honored students include Michael Cooper of Lewisburg, a junior majoring in biology, first place; Thomas Eshleman of Greensburg, a senior majoring in accounting, second place; and Jenni Urban of Glassport, a senior majoring in environmental science, third place. They received cash awards of $500, $300 and $200 respectively. The James D. Bendel Award captures the commitment of Saint Vincent College alumni, James Bendel, C’60, D’85, and Donald Green, C’62, to serving the most vulnerable in their communities. Their lifelong commitment to advocating for the rights of marginalized communities reflects the formation they received as Saint Vincent students.
