Surrounded by family, friends and many members of the Stonehill community, Donna (Jermyn) May ’70, with her husband Thomas May ’69 by her side, formally cut the ribbon to dedicate the Thomas and Donna May School of Arts and Sciences, moments after President John Denning has blessed the new building.
“Donna and I are so glad we found Stonehill and that we found each other here. The College is a special place for us,” Thomas May shared at a ceremony prior to the ribbon cutting. “It is simply amazing to see the transformation of the campus and we are so pleased to be a part of it.”
“I am so proud to be the first Dean of the Thomas and Donna May School of Arts & Sciences,” said Peter Ubertaccio. “Arts and sciences remain core to educating the whole person, fundamental to creating lifelong learners, inextricably linked to successful outcomes for our students, outcomes measured not only in quantity but in lives that make a difference.”
“Since Tom and Donna graduated from Stonehill, they have continuously given back to the College through service and leadership and by contributing to scholarships, academic initiatives and building projects,” said Fr. John Denning, C.S.C., President of the College. “Their loyalty and kindness will continue to have an enormous impact in the years ahead, and we here at Stonehill are so very grateful.”
