Friedman Wins Waldron Award

Friedman Wins Waldron Award

Asst. Prof. Audrey Friedman (LSOE) received the seventh annual Mary Kaye Waldron Award from the Undergraduate Government of Boston College at a dinner in the Lower Campus Dining Hall Heights Room on April 28.

Presented to a faculty member or administrator who has worked to enhance student life at Boston College, the award commemorates the late Mary Kaye Waldron '95, a varsity basketball manager and member of the Jenks Leadership Program and who died of cancer in her senior year.

The award citation praised Friedman as "a 'surrogate mother' for students in the Lynch School, who cares deeply for her students."

Friedman, who joined the BC faculty after earning her doctorate from the Lynch School of Education in 1995, said she was surprised and gratified by the honor.

"The Boston College students I've had the chance to know, especially those in the Lynch School, have been so incredible," she said. "They truly are men and women for others," she said. "This award is the most I could hope for as a teacher."
