After Donnelly, John Romito received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Missouri and his MD from the University of Kansas in 1973. He has received numerous awards and recognition from his expertise as an Orthopedic Surgeon. He served more than 20 years as chair of orthopedics and as Chief Medical Officer at Overland Park Regional Medical Center. John and his wife, who also is a physician, have volunteered their time providing medical services in rural areas of Kansas and on mission trips throughout the world.

“The teachers at Donnelly were very accommodating, and I knew that they wanted me to succeed. Thanks to that nuturing education I received, I was completely prepared for the additional academic challenges that came after Donnelly.” 

John Romito was inducted in 2016.
