Katie Ward ESS Frabutt Award

Katie Ward, a Notre Dame senior and future member of ACE 26, was recently awarded the 2019 Frabutt Prize for Outstanding Community-Based Research in recognition of her research on the intersection of Catholic identity and Native spirituality in three Native American Catholic schools.

Ward, an Education, Schooling and Society (ESS) minor, traces her interest in Native American education as far back as high school, during which she spent a week in an experiential learning course at Red Cloud Indian School in South Dakota. Her experiences in the third-grade classroom began to shape her academic interest in Native American education systems.
