Rev. Msgr. Kevin Hanbury (BA'68, MDM'75, EdS'79, EdD'85) embodied the concept of mission through action. Whether as pastor at St. Philomena's parish, as Vicar of Education in the Archdiocese of Newark, or as an Associate Dean at CEHS, Msgr. Hanbury was always on the move, with a sense of purpose. He modeled a life committed to service with his drive to care, nurture, and empower those who were challenged or in need. Through his development of the EPICS and Catholic School Leadership programs at Seton Hall, Msgr. Hanbury created pathways for those interested in Catholic education to serve children in great need throughout the Archdiocese. The ripple effect of his commitment to his missions have and will continue to profoundly impact generations as teachers, leaders, families, and students benefit from his actions.
The College of Education and Human Services at Seton Hall is proud that Msgr. Hanbury was an alumnus. We now wish to honor the work of other alumni/ae who embody Msgr. Hanbury's passion and commitment to serve.
The Msgr. Hanbury CEHS Alumni Mission Award will be given each year in memory of his legacy to serve. Nominations from CEHS alumni and faculty are now being accepted and the recipient will be chosen by the Dean by January 15, 2017.
The recipient should meet the following criteria:
- Be an alumnus/a of the College of Education and Human Services
- Be actively engaged in performing an activity, perhaps through work or outside of employment (e.g. church, voluntarism, pro bono work, etc.) which demonstrates service or mission in action
- Be recognized by the nominator, and others, for actions that support and contribute to improving the lives of others. The service may be a well-recognized program or event as well as a smaller, but regularly occurring action, all of which positively affects others
- Be focused on helping people rather than being recognized for doing so
