IU President Michael McRobbie awarded Virginia Zeani, Jacobs School of Music professor, and Angela McBride, School of Nursing professor, the President’s Medal for Excellence on Monday.
 
This is the most distinguished award he can offer.

“Professors McBride and Zeani have dedicated their careers to research and creative activities that have made a transformative difference to Indiana University, its students and the world at large,” McRobbie said in a press release.

McBride was dean of the nursing school from 1991 to 2003 and was president of the American Academy of Nursing from 1993 to 1995.

“Professor McBride, who is known for her important contributions to women’s mental health, has mentored and nurtured other nurses as a professor, an author and an organizational president,” McRobbie said. “She has also helped to improve the health of Indiana’s citizens through her work as a member of the Board of Directors of IU Health.”

Zeani is a native Romanian  who was the prima donna assoluta at the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome for 25 years. She performed 69 different principal roles during her career.

“Professor Zeani is an opera legend, known for her beautiful voice, her remarkable technique and her affecting stage presence,” McRobbie said. “During her long and distinguished teaching career, she has mentored and trained many students who have gone on to become acclaimed performers. Professors McBride and Zeani represent the great community of scholars that extends far beyond the walls of the academy.”
