Edward (Ed) Tywoniak, longtime Lasallian Partner in the District of San Francisco New Orleans (SFNO), was honored with Letters of Affiliation (AFSC) from the Brothers of the Christian Schools in a ceremony on April 2 at Saint Mary’s College of California. The ceremony was originally planned for April 18, 2020, but was postponed due to COVID-19.
Tywoniak has been associated with the Lasallian mission for over 40 years. He attended Saint Mary’s College of California in Moraga and later returned to his alma mater, where he served as a faculty member for 40 years before retiring in 2019. Distinguishing himself as an educator with his care and attention to his students, colleagues and work, he has long been recognized as a faithful and effective steward of the Lasallian charism.
Affiliation is a formal recognition and acknowledgement extended by the Institute to those persons who have supported the Brothers in their work, not only through outstanding gifts and services, but also through their professional, personal and fraternal relationship with them. In presenting to them Letters of Affiliation, the Brothers welcome and celebrate affiliates as honorary members of the Institute.
