What’s in a Name?: Javier Ávila, Keynote Speaker for Cabrini Day 2017

“Social justice is like building a cathedral,” said Northampton Community College Professor Javier Ávila, the 2015 Pennsylvania Professor of the Year and keynote speaker for Cabrini Day 2017. “You’re working toward something, and you might not live to see the finished product, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to stop working on it. The next generation will work on it, and then the next generation, until you have something beautiful.” In his presentation, “The Trouble With My Name,” Ávila expounded on Connecting Through Culture, the theme of this year’s Cabrini Day, an annual celebration of heritage and mission honoring Cabrini’s namesake, Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini.
