Sister Judith Ann Karam honored with Sam Miller Goodness Award at Project Love’s annual Celebration of Goodness luncheon

Sister Judith Ann Karam, congregational leader for the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, received the Sam Miller Goodness Award September 12 from Project Love at its annual Celebration of Goodness luncheon. Project Love also honored Governor John Kasich, and Jane and Lee Seidman.

Each year the Sam Miller Goodness Award is given to individuals of various professions, religions and ethnic backgrounds who have made a difference in the community. The award was founded by Sam Miller of Forest City Enterprises who developed the idea to hold a goodness event. Sr. Judith Ann received the award for her work within the Sisters of Charity Health System.

“Respecting the dignity of the human person is at the core of the Sisters of Charity Health System and the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine,” Sr. Judith Ann said. “In Cleveland in 1851, our sisters began an enduring legacy of responsive ministry, creative stewardship and an ongoing quest for social justice. Every day, we strive to light the way to health and wellness for all of God's people. On behalf of many, I am grateful and humbled to be honored with the Sam Miller Goodness Award from Project Love. I honor and salute the mission of Project Love, which contributes greatly in making a difference in young people's lives.”
