Ken Hackett, former president of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), received the University of Notre Dame's 2012 Laetare Medal, the oldest and most prestigious honor given to American Catholics, at Notre Dame's 167th University Commencement ceremony.
"Ken Hackett has responded to a Gospel imperative with his entire career," said Notre Dame's president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. "His direction of the Catholic Church's outreach to the hungry, thirsty, naked, sick and unsheltered of the world has blended administrative acumen with genuine compassion in a unique and exemplary way."
