A professor at Harvard Law School who turned down Notre Dame‘s Laetare Medal 8 years ago will receive a different honor from Notre Dame in the spring.

Professor Mary Ann Glendon opted to decline an invitation to commencement and the Laetare Medal in 2009, the year President Barack Obama delivered the commencement address.

Now, the University has announced Glendon will receive the 2018 Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal from the university’s Center for Ethics and Culture.

The pro-life award will be presented to the former U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See in the spring of 2018, and includes a $10,000 prize.
