Fairfield University cites Alison Dignam for Outstanding Achievement in Spanish


Alison Dignam of Chicopee, Mass., who graduated from Fairfield University on May 20, received the Departmental Award for Outstanding Work in Spanish. The award is given each year to a senior Spanish major who has demonstrated excellence in the subject.

Dignam, who majored in Psychology and Modern Languages and Literatures, studied in Chile in the fall of 1999. She is a tutor and assistant teacher of Spanish Language Oral Practice Sessions. In addition, she is active with campus ministry's community programs and with the Fairfield University Student Association and Senate.

After a summer of European travel, Dignam hopes to work as a volunteer at the Annunciation House Program in Texas and Mexico.
