AT A FORMAL dinner for the Governors of St Mary’s University College in Twickenham, west London, Dr Mary Eaton was presented with the award of Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice for services to the Church in education, in particular higher education.
Bishop George Stack, chairman of the governors, presented the award to Dr Eaton, former vice-principal, who retired from St Mary’s in October 2009 after 33 years’ service.
Dr Naylor said: “I am very pleased that Mary has been honoured in this way. Her contribution to Catholic education, in particular over her 33 years’ service at St Mary’s in different roles, has been immense.” Dr Eaton said: “This award is most unexpected. I have been privileged in always enjoying my work.”
