    Francis J. O'Connor Memorial Award Nomination Form 
    Since 1935 the Francis J. O’Connor Memorial Award has been recognized as the most prestigious honor bestowed upon a graduating senior. Originally, the Honorable Frank A. O’Connor established the Mary Agnes O’Connor Award in memory of his wife.  In 1991, Clarke University, in cooperation with the O’Connor family, renamed the award the Francis J. O’Connor Memorial Award to honor the late Francis J. O’Connor, a long-time Clarke trustee. The award recipient is exceptional in such traits as cooperation, generosity, kindness, leadership and academic achievement. The honor is awarded by vote of the senior class, faculty, and staff. The recipient and those receiving honorable mention are announced at the spring Honors Banquet, with award presentation at Clarke University’s commencement exercises. The award carries with it a stipend of $650.
