Sharing Success When John ’45 and Jo Ann Mullen returned to Saint John’s for their grandson’s graduation in 2014, it brought back good memories of John’s graduation nearly 70 years before. They decided to start a scholarship fund for future Johnnies. John and Jo Ann were natives of North Dakota, but met and married in Honolulu. They both had successful careers in education and owned two real estate companies in Waikiki.

John and Jo Ann wanted to share the fruits of their labors. “I felt Saint John’s had a great

influence on my life and on our family,” John says. “Saint John’s changed our lives.” Two of John’s brothers and three grandsons— Michael ’09, Patrick ’12 and Matthew Thompson ’14 —are graduates. And now, thanks to the John and Jo Ann Mullen Family Endowed Scholarship Fund, future students with need will be able to get a Saint John’s education.

It’s your will. To learn more about making a bequest to Saint John’s, contact Jim Dwyer ’75, director of planned giving, at (800) 635-7303 or jdwyer@csbsju.edu.
