Dr. Mary Meehan, who recently retired after completing two terms as SHSST Board chair, has been named director emerita.
Meehan, the president of Alverno College until her recent retirement, served on the SHSST Board for a total of 11 years, the last eight as its chair.
“Words can’t express our gratitude to Dr. Meehan for her service. The entire seminary community and all of its sponsoring dioceses and religious orders have benefitted tangibly from her vision, tireless enthusiasm and steady encouragement. Her contributions will sustain and inspire this institution for many years to come,” said Dr. Barbara Anne Cusack, who replaced Meehan as Board chair in July.
