Nurse Mulloy Wins Ryken Award
December 7, 2021
Nurse Mulloy has been a staple at St. X during her time here since 2015. She helps students on the daily and is always ready to help them get through the school day, regardless of their illness. She has been a huge help in dealing with the COVID-19 situation at school — a huge task that we are ever grateful to have her here for.
Named after the founder of the Xaverian Brothers, the Ryken Award is given annually to a St. X faculty or staff member who dedicates his or her life to furthering the mission of a Xaverian education.
She’s widely respected by students and faculty alike, so it was not a surprise when she won the award this year. One colleague who nominated her said, “She takes time to get to know students and exudes comfort and support. She knows when students are struggling, and reaches out to offer encouragement.”
“I am truly honored to be this year’s recipient of the Theodore James Ryken Award. I have been in awe of past recipients, and to be included with them is a bit overwhelming and somewhat surreal,” Mulloy said. “To be recognized by my peers, whom I am fortunate enough to work closely with on a daily basis, is extremely humbling.”
