The College of Nursing is honored to present the School and College Service Award to Barbara Kiernan, '65 at the 32nd annual Many Are One Alumni Awards Gala on Friday, June 8, 2018 at 7 p.m. A cocktail reception precedes the event at 6 p.m. Many are One recognizes alumni of Seton Hall University who impact the world in which we live through the mission of servant leadership in their personal and professional accomplishments.
The gala comes back to campus for 2018 and will be held in the newly constructed Bethany Hall, a welcome center dedicated to Monsignor Robert Sheeran '67, president emeritus of Seton Hall. Monsignor Sheeran requested that the center be named Bethany Hall after the Biblical village where Mary, Martha and their brother Lazarus received Jesus into their home, as a place of friendship and community.
Proceeds raised from Many Are One support the Many Are One Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund, which provides children, grandchildren and siblings of alumni who attend Seton Hall with four-year scholarships.
Mercer is the official sponsor of this year's event.
