A former educator, Mary Cleary Kiely is a freelance writer and advocate for children with special needs.
LEADING THE WAY
Awarded in 1980, Kiely's Rhodes scholarship was an achievement that at Dartmouth had been attained only by men. Her unprecedented award served as a public affirmation of women's limitless academic abilities and inspired other female students at Dartmouth to keep the bar set high.
IN HER OWN WORDS
"I will always be grateful to the Dartmouth professors and administrators who paved the way for me and helped me to grow. I hope I have done the same for others in my life."
