Honoring Donna Carroll
The Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa thanked Donna Carroll (left) for her 27 years of service as the first lay president of Dominican University, River Forest, IL, during an Oct. 28 evening prayer service at Sinsinawa Mound. Patty Gallagher, OP, recognized Donna for her “superior leadership, extraordinary service, and continuing friendship.” Diane Kennedy, OP (right), preached at the event. “You were entrusted with a small women’s college with a tradition of excellence and transformed it into a university with four graduate schools,” said Diane. “Your personal gifts of intellectual brilliance, strategic planning, and personal warmth created a learning community alive with the spirit of caritas and veritas.” The Congregation gifted $5,000 to the Donna Carroll Scholarship Fund in her honor.
