Mary Quinn Griffin, professor in the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, was named to the 2016 Irish Education 100, a listing of the leading Irish-American figures in education across the United States.
The Irish Education 100 gives tribute to the enduring Irish success in education, especially at the university level. Across the nation, many top institutions have men and women of Irish blood in positions of leadership.
The Irish Education 100 honorees are some of the most distinguished and accomplished leaders in America with Irish heritage. It was first compiled by the Irish Voice newspaper in an effort to quantify the Irish commitment to excellence in education in the United States. The 2016 Irish Education 100 honorees appeared in a special edition issue of the Irish Voice in December.
