Robert and Maril O'Malley – Advocates

(Presented by Jeanne Friedman)

Robert and Maril O’Malley played a critical role in the establishment and continued success in the Mount Holyoke rowing program. Together with a group of friends, Dr. and Mrs. O’Malley established the Friends of Rowing – a group that has raised money for a number of efforts, including the program’s first head coach, equipment and the state-of-the-art boathouse to which the Lyons’ team calls home. The O’Malley’s support, which remained throughout all the transition and changes of the program, continues today via the O’Malley Endowed Equipment Fund, which helps maintain the team’s fleet as one of the best in all of NCAA Division III.
