Students Create Video Tribute to Paula Sullivan

November 21, 2014


Last week, former  Assistant Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Paula Sullivan was honored when the College's basketball court was officially dedicated as the "Paula J. Sullivan Court."

To help celebrate Sullivan's legendary 43-year career at Stonehill, students William Baker '16, a graphic design major and member of the ice hockey team,  and Oliver Williams '15, a communication major, put together a video tribute. 

The video features several of Stonehill's athletic teams along with special messages from Senior Associate Athletics Director Cindy MacDonald, Vice President of NCAA Division II Terri Steeb Groneau, former New England Patriot Joe Andruzzi, former and current players, family members and many more. 

Over the course of her Stonehill career, Sullivan distinguished herself as a leader and a mentor, someone who cared deeply for our student-athletes. An excellent basketball coach, she leaves behind an impressive record of success, which includes 25 consecutive winning seasons with the women’s basketball team, a 479-159 overall record, six Northeast-10 Conference championships,  10 NCAA Division II Tournament berths, and two trips to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight. Factor in the College winning its first Northeast-10 Conference President’s Cup for overall academic excellence under her leadership, and you understand the impact she has had on our community.
