ORLANDO, Fla. - On Saturday, the Catholic University athletics department was honored for its annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service as the winner of the National Association of Division III Administrators (NADIIIAA) Community Service Award for On-Going Project category during the 2017-18 academic year.
Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics Sean Sullivan and Associate Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator Meghan McDonogh received the award at the NADIIIAA annual reception on Saturday, January 26 as part of the NCAA Convention at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Florida.
"I could not be more proud of the annual effort our student-athletes and their coaches make in contributing to the MLK Jr. Day of Service," said Sullivan. "They continue to be the role models for our community that we, as a department, ask them to be."
Each January on MLK Day, 500-plus student-athletes and coaches head out into the Greater Washington, D.C. area to provide the community with a wide-ranging day of service. The student-athletes spend the day engaging in a variety of service projects working in local schools, cleaning neighborhoods, painting buildings and beautifying city areas among other volunteer efforts.
