Loyola honors teacher, news figures at celebration

March 26, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An economics professor and four members of the news media were honored at Loyola College in Maryland yesterday during the Jesuit school's annual Maryland Day celebration.

The announcement that the Rev. Francis G. Hilton had been selected for the college's Distinguished Teacher of the Year was greeted with resounding applause and then a standing ovation, the first a professor has received during the presentation in recent years, faculty members said.

Honored with Andrew White Medals for their contributions to the Maryland community were National Public Radio talk show host Diane Rehm; Washington TV news anchor Beverly Anne Burke; John S. Carroll, editor of The Sun; and Gene Roberts, editor in chief of the American Newspaper Project at the University of Maryland and former editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The medal is given in honor of the first Roman Catholic priest to celebrate Mass on Maryland soil.
