Susan Kennedy, SMC Alumna And Governor's Chief of Staff, Profiled By San Francisco Chronicle
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's chief of staff Susan Kennedy, EE '07, is profiled by the San Francisco Chronicle. In a front-page feature article, Kennedy spoke to the Chronicle's political writer Carla Marinucci about keeping a promise to her father by earning an undergraduate degree in management at Saint Mary's. Kennedy told Marinucci she needed the diploma "to have career choices." The SMC alumna was a member of 2007 School of Extended Education graduating class, and the Commencement speaker for the occasion was Governor Schwarzenegger - who high-fived her as she walked across the stage.
