Parting Thoughts: Reflections from 2011 Retirees


Name: Mary Lou Connelly

Years at BC: 37

Position: Secretary to University Vice President William B. Neenan, SJ, for last 30 years

“I’ve had some interesting conversations with faculty over the years, and met some fascinating people through Fr. Neenan. I’ve also gotten some good reading suggestions through Fr. Neenan’s ‘Dean’s List’ [his annual list of recommended books]; my favorite was Kristin Lavransdatter, which I probably never would have thought to read if not for his recommendation.

Fortunately, my granddaughter will be coming to BC this fall as a freshman, so I’ll still be around.”
