Viterbo Announces 2019 Recipients of the Saint John XXIII Award for Distinguished Service

 Thursday, May. 2, 2019 Share

Longtime community volunteers and supporters of higher education Annette Friedewald, Mary Ann Gschwind, FSPA, and Kent and Karen Handel are the recipients of the 2019 Viterbo University Saint John XXIII Award for Distinguished Service.Annette Friedewald notices when there is a need in the community and does her best to meet it. Whether is it volunteering at the La Crosse Catholic Charities Warming Center, Franciscan Hospitality House, or as a driver with Mobile Meals, she demonstrates her immense compassion by listening and showing that she cares in an effort to help each individual feel better. She believes people who volunteer and serve the community receive more than they give. Annette also serves as a prayer partner with the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Annette and her late husband Marv have also been generous supporters of Viterbo University students. Marv was a longtime faculty member who created the business program. Big fans of Viterbo athletics and understanding the demands faced by student-athletes, the Friedewalds created scholarships for men’s and women’s basketball. Upon Marv’s retirement from the university, a business scholarship was created in recognition of their support and service to Viterbo. A fourth scholarship was also created in Marv’s honor. The scholarships are a fitting tribute to Marv’s legacy as a Viterbo educator and community member. Annette currently serves on the Viterbo Alumni board.
