In the fourth grade, Sr. Margaret won a prize for a drawing. Perhaps that affirmation set her on track to become Chair of the Art Department at the College of Notre Dame, now NDNU, and teacher of art history and design.
Or perhaps having a dad who “covered ships” for American President Lines passenger ships (translation: a journalist interviewing distinguished passengers) anticipated her future involvement in Communications. After many satisfying years in the classroom in high school and the university, Sr. Margaret spent five years in Washington, D.C., doing international communications for the congregation. She describes it as a “life-changing experience. The SND mission became truly global for me in those years.”
Nowadays though you’ll find Sr. Margaret concentrating on justice and peace issues for the California Sisters of Notre Dame and loving every minute of it. As Sr. Margaret likes to say, “Life is change!”
