Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, the chaplain for the Loyola-Chicago men’s basketball team, turned 100 on Wednesday.

As part of the celebration on campus, the school announced a scholarship fund and endowment in Sister Jean’s honor to support students.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker also proclaimed Aug. 21, 2019, “Sister Jean Day” across the state.

Among the ways Sister Jean is being celebrated is with a Lego likeness of her that will be on display at the Legoland Discovery Center through October, when it will be moved to the Ramblers’ Gentile Arena.
