Irene Horstmann Hannan '68

Hometown: Devon, PA.

Personal: Daughters Irene and Hilary, and sons Richard and Alec.

Alma Mater: Trinity College, Washington, DC, Class of 1968.

Major: Political science.

Graduate Study: Political science, Temple University, advanced leadership training, Babson College.

Employment: Citizens Bank, senior vice president.

Why I chose Trinity: Trinity was a family tradition and I knew many alumnae who were friends of my mother, aunts and cousins. They were collectively an impressive group of women. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to follow in their footprints.

Accomplishment of which you are most proud: Following my divorce at age 47, with the help of many others, I found the strength to start a new fulfilling life while raising my four amazing children.

Most memorable Trinity moment: Class Days, for the feelings of friendship and good fun.

Last book read: The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch.

My idea of a perfect vacation: The ocean, good wine, good conversation, and no Blackberry.

If I were stranded on a deserted island I would have to have: After three days, a search party.

The three people I would most like to have dinner with: Julia Child (to ensure a great meal), Barbara Jordan and Margaret Thatcher (to ensure great political conversation).

Why I am a Trinity trustee: I have always believed that to whom much is given, much is expected. My Trinity experience had a great deal to do with the woman I am. I joined the Board to see that Trinity’s mission, to educate women otherwise denied access to education, continues for generations of women to come.
