Honoring the Legacy of Retiring Elms Faculty

Three faculty members retired at the end of the 2017-2018 academic year, leaving behind a tremendous legacy of teaching and mentoring during their nearly 58 combined years of service to Our Lady of the Elms. Each has contributed significantly to scholarship in their field and has taught and mentored hundreds of students during their tenure. The impact of their contributions will be felt for many years to come, both at the Elms and in the lives of Elms alumnae. All of us at the Elms wish them well in this next phase of their life journey.
