The recipient of the annual Major Bowes award was another Stepinac theatre legend: FR. JAMES CASHMAN. Fr. Cashman, a Crosier father, was part of the school's faculty for three decades and inspired a countless number of students. During his tenure, he served as moderator and director of the school's drama program. The program soared under his direction. He was known as a true thespian who also possessed a vast knowledge of technical theatre. Students recall him as a great storyteller. His sense of humor was truly unmatched. He was seen not only as a teacher but also as a mentor to his students. The ceremony took place during the performance of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, the drama club's 98th production. There was a cocktail reception prior to the show and during intermission as well.
