Many Illinois State University employees, former employees and retirees journeyed to Milwaukee, Wis., to celebrate alumna and former colleague Linda Timm’s inauguration as Mount Mary College’s 10th president.

Timm earned a bachelor’s degree in communication in 1972 and a master’s degree in 1979 and doctorate in 1994, both in educational administration.
