Dr. George A. Milot receives inaugural
Brother Patrick Carey Award

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Dr. Michael O’Connor, director of the Providence Alliance for Catholic Teachers at Providence College (PACT), announced recently that he has presented Dr. George A. Milot with the Brother Patrick Carey, C.F.C., Ph.D. Award in Catholic education.


Dr. Milot is the inaugural recipient of the award, which was commemorated in Brother Carey’s name last year upon his retirement as long-time director of the PACT program. 

Dr. Milot is the founder and president of Catholic Education Consultants, a group devoted to helping Catholic schools thrive while planning for the future. He is a veteran Catholic school educator and administrator for various schools around New England, including St. John Paul II Catholic Academy in Dorchester and Bishop Feehan High School in Attleboro, where he served as principal, and the Diocese of Fall River, where he was superintendent of schools. He attended Seton Hall University, receiving a doctorate degree in educational administration and supervision. 


The PACT program, established at Providence College in 2001, provides an opportunity for recent college graduates to teach in Catholic schools in New England, while receiving a Master of Education degree from PC. PACT is part of the University Consortium for Catholic Education (UCCE), a network of 13 Catholic educator teacher preparation and formation programs at Catholic colleges and universities across the United States. 

PACT teachers receive holistic support from the PACT program and their placement in Catholic schools while making valuable contributions through their teaching, and broader participation in their school communities in support of their students. 

Founded in 1917, Providence College is the only college or university in the United States administered by the Dominican Friars. It has an undergraduate enrollment of approximately 4,000 students, and offers degrees in 50 academic majors. Providence College consistently has been ranked among the top five regional universities in the North according to U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges.”
