    Barry and U of M Celebrate Sister Jeanne O'Laughlin's 85th Birthday: Florida Women of Achievement Film Documentary Tributes O'Laughlin’s Life

     

    Two Florida universities, Barry University and the University of Miami, honor former Barry University President Sister Jeanne O’Laughlin, OP, PhD, on her 85th birthday mid-May 2014, celebrating the activist nun's legacy and commitment to Barry and the international community with a sneak preview of “Portraits of Inspiration: Sister Jeanne” film documentary.

    The 30 minute tribute to O'Laughlin, produced and directed by artist and Florida Women of Achievement founder Scherley Busch, is the first in FWA’s film series documenting Florida's diverse women leaders. It relays the amazing story of how Sr. Jeanne, one of South Florida’s treasured community leaders, transformed a struggling small all girls Barry College into the 4th largest private university in the state and how her leadership and devotion brought her international repute.

    To learn more about Sister Jeanne and the FWA programs, presented by Amaranthine, a 501 c corporation formed to inspire our future leaders as well as archive present day women’s history, go to floridawomenofachievement.org.
