Margaret McKenna '83The Emmanuel College Board of Trustees recently voted to appoint Margaret L. McKenna, a member of the Class of 1983, as its new Chair. “How fitting it is to have an alumna leading the Board as we approach the College’s Centennial in 2019,” said Thomas J. Hynes, Jr., who twice chaired the Board with distinction, most recently from 2007 to 2016, and who will continue to provide leadership as the Board’s Vice Chair. “Tom has demonstrated such an inspiring commitment to Emmanuel,” said President Sister Janet Eisner, SND. “We are grateful that the Board will continue to benefit from his expertise and strategic vision.”

McKenna, a Trustee since 2011, is Executive Vice President, Relationship Management, Workplace Investing, at Fidelity Investments in Boston. A passionate supporter of the College, she has contributed substantial time, energy and resources to advancing Emmanuel’s mission and has helped create internship and employment opportunities for Emmanuel students at Fidelity. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from Emmanuel in 1983 and an M.B.A. from Boston University in 1993. She and her spouse, Michael J. Mangaudis, have two grown sons and live in Worcester, Mass. “I am truly honored and humbled,” McKenna said. “I have always loved the College, and I am incredibly proud of my Emmanuel education. I think we have an amazing opportunity to help today’s students grow morally, intellectually and spiritually, and I look forward to this next chapter.”
