It seems honor and humility go hand in hand when it comes to the Rev. Charles Cummins, chaplain of Weber State University's Newman Center.
Father Cummins has served as everything from bus driver to track coach and charitable events organizer during his 44 years of association with the Utah Catholic schools system. He recently was presented with the Christ the Teacher Award after the Mass for Professional Educator Day at St. Vincent de Paul Parish.
In nominating Cummins for the honor, St. Joseph Elementary School Principal Nancy Essary wrote that the priest "always makes time to celebrate Mass for our students. He celebrates a very special First Holy Communion Mass for our second-graders, he's a fantastic golfer, and he is a huge supporter of both of our St. Joseph schools."
