MILWAUKEE – Mary Corrigan Cary will be honored with the Distinguished Alumna in Service to Nursing Award from Marquette’s College of Nursing and the Marquette University Alumni Association in a ceremony on Friday, April 29. Corrigan Cary earned a bachelor of science in nursing from the college in 1972.
Corrigan Cary, a Mequon resident, has extensive experience in the nursing field, serving as a staff nurse in pediatrics, orthopedics, intermediate intensive care, childbirth education, pediatric oncology, adult extended care, home hospice and ambulatory pediatric care.
Corrigan Cary has been active through the community, serving on several boards, including Women for MACC, the Marquette University High School Mother’s Guild and the Sts. Cecilia and James Parent Association. In 1978, she was named president of the Association of Marquette University Women, the youngest in history. Corrigan Cary is also a member of the Christ Child Society, a Eucharistic minister and a member of the Pastoral Care Commission for her parish, Lumen Christi Catholic Church. In addition to her professional and civic contributions, she raised six children, four of which attended Marquette, and has four grandchildren.
Humbled by her award, Corrigan Cary says, “I credit the Marquette University College of Nursing with its incredibly professional and dedicated faculty for instilling in each one of us what it means to be of service to others.”
The Alumni Awards ceremony is part of Marquette University’s Alumni Awards weekend, April 28-30, during which each college recognizes the contributions of its alumni and presents awards to those demonstrating exceptional achievement. For more information, visit www.marquette.edu/awards.
