Sacred Heart Schools Presents 2019 Francesconi Award

This award is given annually to one employee of Sacred Heart Schools who has contributed significantly to the school and/or Louisville community, enriches the lives of those around her by living the mission of Sacred Heart Schools, and demonstrates integrity through her daily interactions with others.

Charlie Francesconi, the award’s namesake described Dr. Chipe as “a person of faith, integrity, compassion, intellect, and creativity,” adding that she had been described as “the consummate professional.” He went on to say that “her life is guided by love and the concern for others. She is a giving person who makes every effort to meet her responsibilities – in her home, church, and for Sacred Heart Schools.  She espouses the Ursuline Core Values in day-to-day activities and has always considered her position on campus as a ministry rather than a job.”
