The Catholic Foundation has selected Sister Margaret Ann Moser, O.S.U. to receive the 30th Catholic Foundation Award during a special dinner reception this spring.

Sister Margaret Ann is president of the Ursuline Academy and is the school’s longest-serving leader. She attended Ursuline herself and has been president since 1989.

At Ursuline, she led the $10 million capital campaign from 1993-2000 to fund campus expansion and improvements, including the Jane Neuhoff Athletic Center and the Ursuline Center for Performing Arts. She has directed the Academy through a $22 million campus renewal, including construction of The French Family Science, Math, and Technology Center and new music building, as well as significant growth in endowments.

“Ursuline Academy of Dallas and our broader Catholic community have greatly benefited from the selfless service, dedication and wisdom of Sister Margaret Ann,” says Edwin M. Schaffer, Catholic Foundation president and CEO.  “Under her leadership, Ursuline has seen great achievements in infrastructure, enrollment and parental involvement, and her example has left a lasting impression on countless Ursuline graduates. Her commitment to the community extends far beyond the school as well.”

The award dinner is set for Feb. 10 at the InterContinental Dallas.
