Thomas H. Powell, EdD’82, currently in his 10th year as president of Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmetsburg, Md., has led the nation’s second-oldest Catholic university to new heights. The school completed its first new residence hall in 30 years, built a new soccer and lacrosse stadium, a new baseball field, Founder’s Plaza and a peace plaza. He has overseen improvements in student life and the development of new academic majors. Overall, he has laid a foundation for Mount St. Mary’s to go forward, and he credits his time at Peabody as giving him the foundation for what has been a remarkable career.
“All that I have done is a direct result of the wonderful mentoring I had from the very talented and dedicated faculty,” he says.
