Aviat Award Information

Each year in November, as we reflect on gratitude and thanksgiving, OLGC recognizes three teachers who embody the spirit of St. Leonie Aviat in their calling as faith-filled, dedicated Catholic School teachers.

This award is made in honor of Elizabeth White, OLGC Graduate and former OLGC 2nd grade teacher, who is remembered for her vivacious laugh and infectious smile. Even more, she is honored by those who follow in the example she set through her daily actions. Described as the embodiment of faith, hope, and perseverance, Elizabeth followed in the example of St. Leonie Aviat in her dedication to education and spirit of service. She truly embodied the Salesian call to “be who you are and be that perfectly well.”

To celebrate the memory of Elizabeth and her love for OLGC, we are pleased to award the Aviat Award to three outstanding faculty members each year. To be considered, teachers must have completed at least one year of service at OLGC and submit essays that reflect on their calling as educators in Catholic Schools.

The Aviat Awards are made possible by The Wildcat Fund, OLGC’s annual giving program.  For more information, please visit: https://www.olgcschool.org/wildcatfund .
