SCRANTON — Marywood University recently announced the 2016 recipients of the Sister Benedicta Berendes, IHM Memorial Fund, which is funded by Marywood graduate Mary Kay Pieski, Ph.D.: Catherine Owens, of Clarks, Summit, a graduate student pursuing a master of arts in teaching degree with certification in English, and Joseph Buderwitz, of Scranton, an undergraduate history/secondary education major.

Owens and Buderwitz traveled to Poland this summer for the program Teaching English in Poland (TEIP), which was developed by the Kosciuszko Foundation. The project, with honorary sponsorship by the Polish National Commission for the United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), selects and trains participants from across the United States.

The Sister Benedicta Berendes, IHM Memorial Fund provides financial support to candidates accepted and traveling to Poland through the Kosciuszko Foundation. These two students were a part of a unique cross-cultural initiative that brings together American volunteers with Polish students, ages 7 to 16, to bring American life and language to Polish youth, as well as to learn more about Poland and their hosts.
