Hometown girl grows up to be College president

Courier Winter 2016

Cervelli grew up in South Bend directly across the St. Joseph River from the Saint Mary’s campus and is the product of two local Catholic schools with strong Holy Cross influences— Holy Cross School and Saint Joseph High School. She generously shares personal photos with Courier readers. Get to know the new president, who has a lifelong appreciation for the outdoors, athletics, music, art, academics, and her Catholic faith and education. As her best friend Kathy Reddy White ’79 puts it, it’s as though Cervelli has been preparing her whole life to lead this Catholic, women’s, liberal arts college.
