2015 Honorary Alumna - Mary Keefer
The Outstanding Honorary Alumna for 2015 is Mary Keefer. The Bishop Luers’ mission statement declares, “We are the Light of the World,” and our 2015 distinguished Honorary Knight Award recipient, Mary Keefer, exemplifies this statement in both word and action. Her passion for her work, her faith, her devotion to family, as well as her daily examples of true Christianity, are only a few of the ways our Distinguished Knight has made an enormous impact on Luers’ students, staff, and community.
Keefer began her own Catholic education at Cathedral Grade School, after which she made the short trek to Central Catholic High School, graduating in 1966. She continued on with her education at St. Francis and then to Indiana University/Purdue University –Fort Wayne (IPFW) where she received her bachelors, masters and administration degrees. She had a dedication to her profession—really “her calling” and served children with unrivaled passion
Keefer spent eighteen years around the “ranch” as she always called Bishop Luer’s campus. She loved being at Luers and it showed in her interactions with everyone she encountered. “We are the Light of the World” sums up our Distinguished Knight recipient….Mary Keefer lights up so many worlds, that there could not be a better choice for the 2015 recipient. Congratulations to Bishop Luers High School Honorary Alumna Distinguished Knight, Mary Keefer.
