Congratulations to the Cassins and the Healeys, members of FADICA. The National Catholic Educational Association will honor them with the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Award on October 7th in Washington DC. The Seton Award is NCEA's highest honor, given in recognition of significant contributions to Catholic education. B.J. Cassin founded the Cassin Educational Initiative Foundation in 2000 to establish quality Catholic college preparatory middle and high schools in economically challenged communities.
The Foundation has made significant impact through the Cristo Rey Network, the Nativity Miguel Network, and Catholic higher education.
Robert Healey, whose daughter Christine Healey recently joined FADICA for the Healey Education Foundation, is also being honored with the Seton Award for helping insure the future of the Catholic school network in the diocese of Allentown, PA. Congratulations to the Cassins and the Healeys!
