Hoeven Honors Sister Thomas Welder on U.S. Senate Floor

WASHINGTON, D.C - Senator John Hoeven today spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate to honor Sister Thomas Welder, the former president of the University of Mary, who passed away on Monday. As governor, Hoeven awarded Sister Thomas with the Rough Rider Award in 2004.

“Sister Thomas was truly somebody who I think epitomizes the term servant leader. She was a person of incredible faith. She lived her faith and she provided that to others certainly in her words but in her deeds,” said Hoeven. “Mikey and I want to express our sincere appreciation for her lifetime of service and her commitment to God. Sister Thomas was patient. Sister Thomas was wonderful. Sister Thomas was beloved and Sister Thomas will be missed very, very much.”
