Carmen Santiago named

Santiago has served the Loyola community for 40 years.

On Thursday, November 14, friends and colleagues burst into applause, as Carmen Santiago, a 40-year Loyola veteran, won the Kay Egan Person for Others Award at the University's annual staff recognition ceremony.

The award is designed “to distinguish a staff member with five years or more of University service, who has consistently made a significant positive impact within their department, fostering the mission of the University.”

For the past decade, Santiago has worked as an administrative assistant for the Undergraduate Programs Office at Quinlan, putting both a professional and personal touch on her work.

“Carmen is often baking her famous cakes for Quinlan folks and anyone at the University who asks,” says Susan Ries, assistant dean of the Undergraduate Programs Office. “She is without a doubt a very deserving recipient of the Kay Egan Person for Others Award.”
