Jay Caponigro Wins Notre Dame Champion for Education Award

Author: Andrew Kostielney

After a 30,000-mile, seven-month string of visits to Catholic schools around the country, the University of Notre Dame’s ACE Bus returned to campus Monday, June 9, and drove up to the Main Building for an event presenting awards to two champions of local public schools.

As part of the homecoming celebration, Father Scully presented Notre Dame Champion for Education Awards to Jay Caponigro, a member of the campus administration who also serves as vice president of the board of the South Bend Community School Corporation.

Caponigro encouraged the next generation of teachers to look at the talents of their students and “also look at all those in the community who want to help you make your students achieve to their fullest capacities — whether those are parish staff or business leaders or folks from nonprofits.”
