Ms. Arsenijevic will receive the Academy of the Sacred Heart Leader of Conscience Award for 2011 for her courage and endless work uniting diverse cultures amid the conflict, ethnic strife and violence that once embroiled Yugoslavia and the Balkans. Her message of hope and optimism has been delivered through her music worldwide.

The Leaders of Conscience Speaker Series aims to provide ethical guidance and real-life testimonials from internationally-known personalities whose lives and works inspire students and the larger community with messages of hope and optimism. Past recipients of the Leaders of Conscience award include Emmy Award-winning journalist and bestselling author Cokie Roberts, legendary coach and author Lou Holtz, and hockey great Steve Yzerman.

“The Leaders of Conscience Speaker Series provides an opportunity for both our students and our greater community to expand our awareness of social values and impel us to action,” said Sr. Bridget Bearss, Head of School of the Academy of the Sacred Heart. “Our awardees reinforce the mission of the Academy in preparing a new generation of leaders of conscience, creative thinkers, ethical problem solvers and those prepared to lead without hesitation in any walk of life.”
