After graduating from Donnelly, I went on to receive my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Donnelly College truly set the foundation that created many career opportunities for me. I retired after starting and building a successful manufacturing business that I ran for 20 years.
Five decades later, so many of the stories coming out of Donnelly remain the same. Donnelly makes college affordable to everyone with very limited income and to those of us who are often the first in our families to graduate from college. The faculty and staff are still the caring, hardworking people who continue the work of those Benedictine Sisters who taught me.
In this issue of the Donnelly Digest, you will get to know some of the many faces of the College: from students to alumni and friends. Your continued support makes these stories possible.
On behalf of Donnelly President Monsignor Stuart Swetland; the faculty and staff; the students; the Board of Trustees; my wife, Mary Jo, and myself, thank you for your commitment to this life-changing institution.
