Diane Hentges

Class of 1966

Within four years of graduation from Donnelly, Diane Hentges completed her bachelor’s degree at Mount St. Scholastica College and a master’s degree at the University of Kansas. Diane’s entire career was focused on service in Kansas City, Kansas. From her lengthy tenure at Catholic Charities to Children’s Mercy and the Shepherd’s Center, to her more than 10 years as Director of the Volunteer Center for United Way of Wyandotte County, Diane has helped improve the lives of those in our community.

“Donnelly was the foundation for the formal higher education that was to follow. The Benedictine influence was strong and Donnelly challenged me to achieve through the coursework and nurtured me to be prayerful and Christ-like in my daily life.”   

Diane Hentges was inducted in 2015.
