Dr. Myrna Grandgenett, whose contributions to Cabrini consists of the creation of the Wolfington Center, has handed in her resignation and will leave Cabrini come June 11. Grangenett has decided to return to her alma mater, The College of Saint Mary, in Omaha, Nebraska where she has been appointed Chair of the Division of Health Care Professions.

Grandgenett said, “I began to think about moving closer to my family in Nebraska after my sister died last fall. I realized in a new way how short life is and how important it is to be close to family. When the opportunity at the College of Saint Mary in Omaha presented itself, I was extremely happy because it is such a good school and a challenging position where I can continue to make a difference.”

Grandgenett’s new job has the same priorities that attracted her to Cabrini. Her job will consist of the things she cares most about: educating women for leadership in professional careers and encouraging commitment to responsible social action for justice.

For ten years, Grandgenett has worked at Cabrini providing service to several leadership areas. Her experience at Cabrini has ranged from occupying roles as consultant and facilitator to working full-time as the Vice-President for Human Resources and Planning. Since 1999, Grandgenett has devoted her energies to Mission Integration.

“The hardest part of leaving Cabrini will be leaving the people who make Cabrini such a special place. We’ve celebrated good times and supported each other in hard times. So often, we take each other for granted but as I’m getting ready to leave, I am even more aware of how special this community is. I’ve always found it hard to leave a place I love,” Grandgenett said.

Although Grandgenett will be leaving Cabrini, her contributions in putting together the Wolfington Center, an integrated division where campus ministry, service learning, community outreach and Catholic social teaching come together, will be remembered for years to come.
