The Rev. Dave Pivonka, TOR, university president, presented the awards. Carapellotti was recognized for her charitable work. She and her children began their own business, Fraspada Management, which, in partnership with the university, developed Franciscan Square. Skiviat, a 1978 university graduate, was named university vice president of finance in 1993, and served for 25 years overseeing the university’s financial health and physical expansion before his retirement.
