Range JSr. Joan Range, ASC, who died Thursday, May 7, 2015, is being honored Friday, May 8, for co-founding the Women’s and Gender Studies Department of Saint Louis University.

Sr. Joan will receive the university’s annual Founders Award for 2015 along with Dr. Judith Gibbons, for their work in establishing the program. Women’s and Gender Studies became a department this year and in the Fall will launch a master’s degree program.

The two will be honored at a celebration of faculty and students.

Sr. Maria Hughes and Sr. Janet McCann will be present at the award celebration at Saint Louis University on May 8. We wondered if perhaps Sr. Joan would wait to receive both her eternal reward and this award on the same day. We decided she wanted us to know it’s always good to take the better one first!
