2017 Honorees

Kathleen Driscoll Amatangelo ’62 of Barrington Hills, Ill., received the Pamela Trotman Reid Service Award recognizing an alumna or friend who has transformed the University through philanthropy and volunteerism. Since graduating in 1962, Amatangelo has maintained a strong relationship with, and unwavering commitment to, USJ. Currently a member of the Board of Trustees and the Task Force on Coeducation, she has provided generous donations to the University over the last 50 years, including the Amatangelo Gates at the campus’ Asylum Avenue entrances, the Frances Driscoll Box Office in Bruyette Athenaeum, and two stained glass windows in the Connor Chapel of our Lady. An attendee of every class reunion, Amatangelo has been a leader in creating the Class of 1962 Endowed Scholarship.
