Marquette University – 2000
As a Marquette University alum, and vice president and client & community relations director for PNC Bank in Wisconsin, Molly Schweiger has embraced the idea of “cura personalis” (care for the whole person) that is at the core of a Marquette education, according to Sarah Burkhart, executive director of Marquette’s Alumni Association in the Office of University Advancement.
Through her role at PNC, Schweiger, who graduated in 2000 with a degree in public relations, supports two key Marquette projects: MKE LAX and Technology Needs.
MKE LAX is a weekly after-school program through which coaches and athletes on Marquette’s men’s and women’s lacrosse teams conduct mentoring sessions and lacrosse practices with students from the Milwaukee Academy of Science.
Technology Needs provides technology support for Marquette students who are unable to afford the technology — laptops and internet access — necessary for successful remote education during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Schweiger has used Marquette as a portal to address the needs of the community. Her work and commitment are clearly helping not just Marquette community members, but citizens across southeast Wisconsin,” Burkhart said.
