Charles F. Lennon Jr. will retire in June 2011 after 30 years as executive director of the University of Notre Dame Alumni Association. Louis M. Nanni, vice president for University Relations, will conduct a national search for Lennon’s successor.
Speaking on behalf of the two other presidents for whom Lennon served, Revs. Theodore M. Hesburgh and Edward A. Malloy, Notre Dame’s current president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., said: “Chuck Lennon embodies the spirit of Notre Dame. As a student, athlete, alumnus, coach, administrator, and, since 1981, as the leader of one of the most extraordinary alumni associations in the nation, that spirit animates everything he does. His life is one of loving service to Notre Dame. We will miss his leadership, insight and infectious enthusiasm but wish him the very best in this next stage of his life.”
