2009 Award Winners

Kathleen_OReillyAfter receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree with a triple major in English, History and German from Marygrove in 1968, Kathleen O’Reilly headed to Georgetown University Law Center. Being the first woman named Georgetown’s “Best Advocate” illustrates the direction Kathleen’s career would take. She spent more than 30 years advocating for consumers and the powerless and ensuring that protections were in place for them. Kathleen attributes much of her motivation to the “extraordinary teachers and outstanding education” she received at Marygrove. That education helped give her the encouragement to examine issues with logic and compassion, and to question any authority that lacked either.
