PARK HILLS - Notre Dame Academy honors three alumnae at its annual Women Making A Difference luncheon Thursday at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington.

They are: Sister Mary Laurence Budde, SND, class of 1947; Patricia M. Summe, class of 1971; and Sally McGinnis Monahan, class of 1971.

Budde became a professor of biology at Thomas More College in 1958. She was instrumental in acquiring the Thomas More Ohio River Research Station and was director for 20 years. She was also dean of students. She is now director of the mission office at St. Joseph Heights, which supports the Sisters of Notre Dame mission in Uganda.

Summe graduated from Chase College of Law and after 25 years of private practice, became the first woman Kenton County Circuit Court Judge. She has volunteered at Redwood School and Rehabilitation Center, worked at the Women's Crisis Center, and was a Youth Group Leader for a parish.

Monahan spent time in Bangalore, India, assisting in the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame. She is a sign-language interpreter at Mother of God Church in Covington, serves school counselor at St. Rita School for the Deaf, and choir director of Hands of Love.
