OLSH Honors Inaugural Class of Distinguished Alumni

OLSH was proud to recognize four outstanding graduates this weekend as the inaugural Distinguished Alumni Awards were presented at the Alumni Brunch on Sunday. Congratulations to:

Christine (Plucinski) Glatz '78, OLSH main office secretary, was honored with the Alumnus with Heart Award for her dedication to OLSH and the way in which she demonstrates the Felician Core Values in her daily life. In her acceptance speech, Chris shared that she considers OLSH her second home, a place where she can go to work every day and truly say she loves her job.  
 
James Rosenwald '88, Senior Control Officer at BNY Mellon and philanthropist, received the Christian Leadership Award for his extensive volunteer work and dedication to his faith. He challenged all those in attendance at the brunch to seek out opportunities to live out the Core Values and inspire others.
 
Christy (Tancraitor) Uffelman '95, co-founder of Align Leadership, TED Speaker, executive coach and motivational speaker, was honored with the Professional Excellence Award.  She has not only distinguished herself professionally, she has also made it her mission to help other women find their place in the professional world, and serves on a variety of boards and councils supporting women's leadership.  She invited brunch guests to rediscover their inner flame or passion and work to change the world.
 
Alexander Vallejo '11, software engineer at Microsoft and Technical Director for The Green Hope Orphanage, Inc. was the recipient of the Young Alumnus Award.  He considers this recognition to be a responsibility, a charge to never stop learning and contributing, crediting his experiences at OLSH, especially with Mr. Mihaloew and Coach Mac, for their influence.
