President Donohue is "Irish-American Daughter of the Year"
The Friendly Sons and Daughters of St. Patrick of Mercer County presented the "Irish-American Daughter of the Year" award to President Patricia Donohue at a dinner on March 16. County Executive Brian Hughes gave a touching introduction related to her leadership of the college.


In her remarks Dr. Donohue said, "I am thrilled and delighted to be recognized by the wonderful, strong Irish community here in Mercer County. 'T’is a blessing to be Irish.'" She related some of her family's history in Ireland, and spoke of her travels there. "For all that history, I grew up the daughter of an Irish boy who had to earn his own way from an early age and who never forgot his roots. I grew up with his passion for fairness and sense of opportunity for all." Photo and more here.
