Experience counts!  One Michiana broadcast journalist has that and much, much more.  Maureen McFadden, WNDU-TV news anchor, has been a leading member of the news community for years.  But beyond that she has been a strong supporter of community programs and a remarkable role model for career minded young men and women. 


McFadden shares her success story as the next speaker in the Holy Cross College series Practical Lessons in $uccess.  The event takes place Wednesday evening September 18th  at 7:00 p.m., in the Driscoll Auditorium on the campus of Holy Cross College.


When Maureen McFadden speaks, people listen!  She is a true "home-grown" success story.  A two-time Emmy Award winning journalist who has seen and interviewed thousands of local, regional, and national newsmakers, McFadden counts among many highlights, interviews with civil rights activist Rosa Parks, NBS news anchor Brian Williams, Tonight Show host Jay Leno, and Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger.

As a life-long Michiana resident, Maureen McFadden has been an active participant in many valuable community organizations such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Logan Center, and The Junior League.  She is a graduate of St. Joseph's High School in South Bend, and went on to earn an associate's degree from Holy Cross College and a bachelor's degree from Saint Mary's College.

Holy Cross College business seminars present real world success stories and business perspectives in a warm, friendly, academic environment.  "Practical Lessons in $uccess"augments the academic experience with a strong message for the Michiana community at large.  Members of the Michiana community are welcome to attend the presentation and share the experience.
