Patricia Antonopoulos

Class of 1958

After graduating from Donnelly, Patricia Antonopoulos raised five children and earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UMKC. She taught primary grades in Shawnee Mission School District and went on to teach in the Education Department of Park University. Pat has volunteered at Strawberry Hill Museum, area elementary schools and Keeler Women’s Center. She also has served on the Donnelly College Alumni Board. Pat co-authored the book, Four Ordinary Women in 2009.

“Donnelly taught me the importance of taking responsibility, of following through with no excuses. The Benedictine Sisters could smile with understanding if a term paper was late, but the grade stood - no excuses. They were my mentors, our professors and our inspiration.” 

Patricia Antonopoulos was inducted in 2013.
