Sister Barbara Dreher was honored by Fontbonne University for her distinguished service to the CSJ charism during its annual Founders Dinner on Oct. 13 at the Sheldon Concert Ballroom. She was among six recipients of the 2011 Founders Award that recognizes alumni and other members of the St. Louis community for their values-oriented service to society.

As the executive director of mission advancement of the St. Louis province, Dreher expands awareness of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and their ministries, raises funds to sustain and enhance the sisters’ work and collaborative efforts that they encourage to better serve those in need, and invites families, friends, businesses and foundations to partner with the CSJs in serving the dear neighbor.

Dreher was chancellor at Fontbonne from 2003-2006. She also serves on several boards throughout the St. Louis area.
