Acceptance Speech

In 1981, Gena Stoll-Ewart, better known as “Frau,” was teaching German at the University of Rochester while working on a master’s degree when she heard that McQuaid was looking for a part-time German teacher. Aside from tutoring students, she never had taught at the high school level, let alone at an all-male school, but embraced the opportunity and began her career by teaching German III and German IV to students--at the same time. Her command of the classroom and her enthusiastic passion for languages ultimately earned her a full-time position at McQuaid, where shehas taught German, French, Spanish, Latin, and English. She always is excited to be with her students and she has the ability to connect with each of them in a unique way.

If Frau is not in the classroom, she is busy living out the Jesuit mission of being a “woman with and for others,” by making a meal for Ronald McDonald House, tutoring local refugees, learning a new language, or visiting elderly residents every week at Monroe Community Hospital, an experience she occasionally shares with students by bringing them along.

Acceptance Speech

Thomas Way graduated from McQuaid Jesuit in 1962 and attended St. John Fisher College where he studied sociology and was a member of the soccer team. Following his graduation, Tom worked for Eastman Kodak Co. until was drafted into the U.S. Army in February 1967. In September, Tom joined Company E, 2nd Battalion, 39th Infantry Brigade, 9th Infantry Division in Vietnam. At the time of his deployment, he was engaged to be married.

On October 9, 1967, while serving as a rifleman on a search and destroy mission in the western portion of Long Thanh Province, Vietnam, Tom’s unit came under attack. Tom charged across the open terrain, directing a devastating volume of firepower on the insurgents. Although seriously wounded in the ensuing action, he continued to fight until he succumbed to his wounds. Tom had just turned 23-years-old five days earlier.

On October 25, 1967, Tom was awarded the Purple Heart posthumously. On November 10, 1967, he was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal with “V” Device (First Oak Leaf Cluster). Tom also received the National Defense, Vietnam Service, and Vietnam Campaign Medals.
