Distinguished Lasallian Educator 2005-06
It is impossible to adequately describe Brigid McCausland's many admirable qualities. We have all known Brigid in many different capacities, some as her instructors, others as her colleagues, but mostly as friends.
Brigid came to Manhattan College as a student in 1985 and fortunately for us, she decided to make Manhattan College her home. As the associate registrar since 1992, she has been the most valuable member of the registrar's office. Although several registrars have come and gone, there has never been a lack of continuity in the efficient way the registrar's office is maintained - due to Brigid's dedication, professionalism and hard work.
Brigid is clearly centered on God in her concern for others. Her grace, patience and compassion extend to all - administrators, faculty, staff and students within the Manhattan College family. Her support goes well beyond the work day. She is always there ready to bring cheer into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors, especially in times of need.
Brigid McCausland's friendliness, warmth, and genuinely self-effacing generosity are qualities of a true Lasallian, making her a well-deserved recipient of the Lasallian Staff Member of the Year Award for 2005-2006.
