Former Secretary of Labor Receives Marymount's Golden Dome Award
While Marymount College celebrated all she has done for the school with the 2003 Golden Dome Award, Ann McLaughlin Korologos reflected on all that the school has done for her.
"I've carried with me so many lessons and friendships from that period," said Korologos, a 1963 graduate. "I feel I'm being honored with my whole class. We have a terrific class and are still very close."
The nation's 19th Secretary of Labor, Korologos was only the second woman ever to hold the post when she was appointed in 1987. Upon completion of her term, she was awarded the President's Citizen Medal for public service.
She has served as under secretary of the U.S. Department of Interior and assistant secretary at the Department of Treasury, where she received the Alexander Hamilton Award, the department's highest honor, for distinguished leadership.
Korologos has held leadership positions at several nonprofit and civic organizations, including RAND, a public policy research institution. She also serves on the boards of several major companies, including Microsoft, AMR Corporation and Fannie Mae. Currently, she is a senior adviser to Benedetto, Gartland & Co., an investment banking firm in New York.
Korologos has also been a corporate advocate and generous supporter of alma mater. She served as Marymount's director of alumnae relations from 1966 to 1969, received an honorary degree in 1988 and won the Signet Award in 1992.
