The award was established in 1996 by the Undergraduate Government of Boston College in memory of Mary Kaye Waldron, who died shortly before her graduation in 1995 after battling cancer since age 15. All BC students are invited to submit nominations for the award, which are reviewed by a committee of 15 student leaders.
McMenamin, who joined the University in 1992 and also teaches in the Philosophy Department, was one of 50 nominees for the award. He will be formally honored at the Mary Kaye Waldron Award Banquet on April 23 in the Lower Campus Dining Hall Heights Room. The event, which begins with a 5 p.m. reception, is open to the University community.
