Congratulations, Sr. Barbara

The SND Gospel Witness Award recognizes employees or volunteers in the SND national network who give witness to Jesus’ spirit of compassion, hope and joy and especially to those who experience poverty in its various forms. Award recipients reflect and nurture the Notre Dame charism, spirit and mission within their professional communities and among all with whom they minister.

At NDES, Sister Barbara Soplata teaches enrichment lessons to students in grades K-4, making the children aware of the beauty of God’s creation. The children observe the cycle of the monarch butterfly, study how trees are the source of maple syrup, experience and measure the growth of plants and celebrate historical and local events.

Sister Barbara tutors individual students and appreciates each child’s abilities. She is gifted at assessing their needs and helps them make progress. Children often express appreciation for the growth she has helped them achieve.

All at NDES are so happy for Sister Barbara for being recognized for giving witness to Jesus’ spirit of compassion, hope and joy.
