COMMITMENT HONORED-University President William P. Leahy, SJ, presented a citation to Congressman Joseph Moakley on Jan. 14 honoring Moakley's efforts on behalf of the people of El Salvador and the Jesuit-run University of Central America. Following the murders of six Jesuits, their housekeeper and her daughter at UCA in 1989, Moakley headed the first congressional task force to monitor an individual human rights case, and he returned recently from a visit to the university on the occasion of the eighth anniversary of the slayings. In 1992, BC honored the congressman's efforts when it presented him with an honorary degree. (Photo by Lee Pellegrini)
