Kathleen O’Shaughnessy ’71

for your generosity and creating a lasting legacy at Daemen College.

Kathleen O’Shaughnessy, a 1971 graduate who earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Rosary Hill College (now Daemen College), has been a long-time advocate for the college, having served as a trustee and as an active member of the alumni association. Recently, she made a very generous pledge to Daemen’s “Drive to 75” comprehensive campaign.

In her own words:

It all began in early 1967 when Sister DeSales Hattenbeger ’59 welcomed me to the Rosary Hill College admissions office. She gave me her personal attention and focused on my needs. The college did,” “in fact, provide everything necessary to transform me into a capable professional woman with confidence and integrity. My time on campus gave me many happy days and cherished memories.

Over the decades, I have worked with our alumni chapters in New York City and Albany, and I was also privileged to serve on the Daemen Board of Trustees. I have observed the growth of the college, witnessed how our alumni succeed in their lives and careers, and seen how passionate they are about their alma mater.

Daemen College is a gem, and, with the launch of the “Drive to 75” campaign, I have been inspired to make a new commitment to the college. I hope my fellow alums will join me in making this first-ever comprehensive campaign a great success!
