Alumni of the University of Saint Mary (USM) recently paid special tribute to Sister Kathleen Wood for her years of service as a professor in the college’s theology department. Sister Kathleen was honored during the USM Kansas City area Fall Luncheon on Sunday, Nov. 4, at Grand Street Café, Kansas City, Mo. The USM KC Alumni Council hosts the annual event. During her remarks at the luncheon, Sister Kathleen used phrases from the school song to reflect on what the university may mean to each member of the alumni. She called to mind past and current faculty who  witnessed and modeled the USM spirit. Pictured at left are Dr. Judy Vogelsang, Sister Kathleen and Jane Distler Flick.
