Br. Robert Berger
Distinguished Lasallian Educator 1993-94
You have been selected unanimously by our Committee for Lasallian Education, composed of Brothers and previous recipients of the award, as the 1993-1994 Distinguished Lasallian Educator at Manhattan College. Your leadership and inspiration have promoted, cultivated and advanced the educational apostolate and the Lasallian tradition in Manhattan College. For this, Manhattan today salutes you.
We recognize in you a devoted and zealous Christian Brother, imbued with the vision and the spirit of Saint John Baptist de La Salle. We know that you are an effective teacher, deeply concerned for the intellectual growth and the spiritual maturity of your students. You approach your students with love and respect, humor and enthusiasm, good sense and fairness. You have provided strong and understanding leadership in your role as Resident Director in Jasper Hall, and so have enhanced the quality of residence life at the College. Students and faculty have been high in their praise for your zeal and energy in the work of campus ministry, and especially in the retreat programs. You are indeed a distinguished educator communicating to your colleagues and students at the College all that the Lasallian tradition stands for.
Manhattan gratefully confers upon you the Distinguished Lasallian Educator Award. Manhattan is privileged and honored to have you as the College representative at the Huether Workshop, a national conference for educators from schools associated with the De La Salle Christian Brothers.
In congratulating you on this award, Manhattan is profoundly thankful for the person you are and for all you mean to Manhattan College and its students.
