Assumption alumnae Maureen Ryan Doyle ’73, Charlene Longhi Martin ’78 and Linda Burlingame Rosenlund ’82 were recently featured in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette for their work on the Worcester Women's Oral History Project, which aims to record, collect, and share the personal and historical memories of women throughout the broader Worcester community.

“One interviewer asked, ‘How could that be?’ ” Ms. Ryan Doyle added, drawing laughter from around the table.
