Only 12 presidents in 172 years

Courier Winter 2016

It is amazing to consider that in Saint Mary’s 172-year history, only 11 presidents have gone before Cervelli. The College launched a social media campaign on November 1 called the “12 Days of Presidents.” The timeline included 12 brief snapshots of the legacies of Saint Mary’s leaders. Their tenures varied from just two years (Monsignor John J. McGrath) to 36 (Mother M. Pauline O’Neill, CSC), but each had a lasting impact on Saint Mary’s.
