Pupils assemble quilt for patient

Cancer patients are in the hearts of LinMarie Cameron's first- to third-graders at Queen of Angels Montessori School, Madison Place.

Cameron said that when she gave the students a project to make a lap quilt to be donated to a cancer patient, the students rushed to finish other projects to work on the quilt.

"One of the students commented that she felt that they were taking care of one of God's children," Cameron said. "That about sums up what it meant to this class to do this project."

The students finished the quilt about two weeks ago. It will hang in Cameron's classroom until Thanksgiving and then be donated to Quilters Who Care, an organization that makes and distributes lap quilts for cancer patients.

Cameron said she cut the patterns, and all the kids in the classes participated in hand-stitching the patterns together to form the quilt.

"They plan to make another quilt this spring," Cameron said.

Xavier honors students

Two Xavier University students will be honored with the Medallion award by the Cincinnati Chapter of the Financial Executive International at a banquet Nov. 16 at Xavier's Cintas Center.

Molly Bayer is this year's Medallion recipient as the outstanding finance student, the highest award a finance student can receive, said Philip Glasgo, associate professor of finance.

"Any chief financial officer in the country would recognize the winner of the award as having excelled in his or her discipline," Glasgo said.

Bayer, a senior from Westwood, said she was surprised at the award. "I know the group is made up of high finance executives from local companies and this will give me a chance to meet them at the banquet," Bayer said.

Marcy A. Conklin will receive the Medallion award as the outstanding accounting student.

Others receiving honors for their exceptional accomplishments are Nicholas Dragga, Nicholas Kauffeld, Nicholas Kiefer and Jessica Kupper.

Brian J. Kelly, who received an MBA degree from Xavier in August, will receive the outstanding MBA student in finance award. He is working with Huntington Bank in Columbus.

Brian Buschmiller, Kristen Clary, Matthew Plachecki and Sarah Wells will be recognized as exceptional students in finance.

Roger L. Jenkins, dean of Miami University's Richard T. Farmer School of Business, will be the keynote speaker.
