Award-winning professor Sister Kathleen Angel attended La Roche College at the beginning of its existence.
For 44 years, Sister Kathleen taught in the Pittsburgh, Omaha and Western North Dakota dioceses. She received the Excellence in Teaching Award from Belleview College in Nebraska and the Teaching Award for Postsecondary Education from the Bismarck/Mandan Chamber of Commerce. In North Dakota, she volunteered for St. Alexius Hospital and the Volunteer Caregivers Exchange, an agency funded by the United Way.
Sister Kathleen now serves as the director for the Sisters of Divine Providence at St. Clare’s Villa, an assisted living facility in Alton, Ill. She is responsible for tracking the medical needs of retired Sisters of Divine Providence, scheduling their doctor appointments and supplying or arranging transportation. At La Roche, she earned the Women of Providence Award and currently serves on the board of trustees.
“My fondest memory was the opportunity to come back to La Roche and teach with Sister Mary Martin Hauser, who had been my teacher and mentor,” Sister Kathleen said. “She formed the foundation for the excellent science programs that are found at La Roche today.”
