Founder’s Day Award

Ann McCabe Buenger, a Cincinnati philanthropist and longtime supporter of Xavier, was given the 2009 Founders’ Day Award, which honors individuals whose outstanding contributions to Xavier help the University better serve students and society. Along with her late husband, Clement, a 1953 Xavier graduate, the couple’s support includes the Clement and Ann Buenger Residence Hall, which houses students in the University Scholars and Honors programs, as well as the Clem and Ann Buenger endowed scholarship and a wide-ranging array of projects including the Initiative for Catholic Schools, the renovation of the Alumni Center and the creation of the Gallagher Student Center, among many others. In 2004, Xavier honored Ann with the St. Francis Xavier Medal, its most distinguished award.
