Please join me in congratulating them and expressing to them just how proud we are to have them as our colleagues here in Xavier School. You will recall that they were ultimately selected through a process that began with an institution-wide nomination process.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Pineau-Clifford Institutional Screening and Selection Committee who undertook the important task of selecting this year’s awardees:
Mr. Allen Christopher Silvano Chairperson (AAXS Trustee for School Affairs)

I also acknowledge Mr. Bob Mathew Suñga of the ITS Department, for providing the committee the needed technical assistance regarding the online processes.
Finally, I congratulate the other nominees who made it to the short list in both categories. Thank you for being open to the process. Your work and your example move us to dedicate ourselves to our common mission here in Xavier.
Once again, congratulations to Elsa and Brian for their achievement. Thank you for inspiring us to be more effective, more dedicated Xavier Educators.
