Sister Jean Schmidt is the newest member of Loyola University's sports hall of fame in Chicago. She's also been the men's basketball team chaplain since 1994.

Sr. Jean has become a fixture on the Chicago campus, even getting her own bobblehead day before a game in appreciation for her service. She keeps an office in the Student Center where her door is always open, and she lives in a dorm with 400 undergraduate students, where she also serves as their chaplain.
