On September 7, 2012, 61 distinguished alumni of Assumption University were honoured at a Gala Dinner held at The Ciociaro Club in Windsor. These Alumni of the Century were selected by a blue ribbon committee established by Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, President of Assumption University. The selection process focussed on the following criteria: promotion of the dignity and sacredness of human life; Public Service; Catholic Education; Community Service; Contribution to Higher Education; and Cultural/Ethnic Contributions.
Fully 630 people were in attendance at the dinner, many of whom were family, friends and well wishers of the honourees. Representation was in evidence from many far flung locations, including Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Toronto, the U.S.A., etc.
Funds gathered from this celebration will be allocated to the vibrant Catholic Ministry offered by Assumption University to The University of Windsor.
