Weekly initiative highlights a local Hoosier or business for notable achievements
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Jackie Walorski (IN-02) announced this week’s honoree for her ‘Who’s Who in IN-02’ initiative. During a speech on the House floor earlier today, Walorski thanked Carol Mooney for her service as President of Saint Mary’s College.
President Mooney, who was first appointed to lead Saint Mary’s College in 2004, is set to retire later this year after having accomplished a number of remarkable achievements during her tenure as president. She is a graduate of Saint Mary’s College and its first lay alumna president and spearheaded Saint Mary’s most successful fundraising campaign, Faith Always, Action Now, which raised over $105 million in gifts and pledges and has overseen the steady expansion of both undergraduate and graduate programs.
“For the last twelve years, President Mooney has been beloved by her peers and praised for strengthening the fiscal and academic standings of Saint Mary’s College,” Walorski said. “Her work has directly impacted the lives of students on campus, providing them with the highest quality education possible. On behalf of the people of Indiana’s Second Congressional District, I thank President Mooney for her commitment to improving the state of our community and society at large and wish her all the best as she enters retirement later this year.”
Walorski honored President Mooney as part of her ‘Who’s Who in IN-02’ initiative. Each week, Walorski will highlight notable Hoosiers, companies, and organizations that are making valuable contributions in the Second Congressional District.
