Supporting comments: "Driven by a strong sense of social justice, balanced and mature, Bridget is a quiet steady presence who gets things done without drawing attention to herself. An outstanding scholar, Bridget also has actively worked in over ten different roles on at least seven DCA committees. Her work and leadership during Hunger and Homelessness Week brought that DCA organization and observance of that week to new high standards for participation and communication. Her continual willingness to lead by example led to her being elected to the position of DCA Vice President. Bridget is a kind person who is deeply committed to serving others. She is a person whose actions consistently match her strong personal integrity."
