Parents Association

2013–2014 Parents Association Chaircouple
Philadelphia natives John and Patricia Brennan are the chaircouple of the La Salle University Parents’ Association. “We think so highly of La Salle that we enjoy sharing all of the great things about it with others—certainly in the hope that they will choose La Salle,” Patricia said. “We are happy and proud to be considered a part of this beautiful community, and we support La Salle in any way that we can.”

In addition to their support of the Parents Fund, the Brennans enjoy helping out at various campus events like Family Weekend, Opening Day, and Open Houses. They are the proud parents of four children—Susan, John Jr., Maryellen, ’13, and James, ’14. And when it comes to supporting La Salle, the apples haven’t fallen far from the tree.

During her time at La Salle, Maryellen was instrumental in fundraising efforts as a worker and manager for the Student Phonathon. A senior accounting major, James has helped his Sigma Phi Lambda fraternity brothers to successfully organize the Coach Torpey 5K Run for the past 3 years, raising more than $20,000 for La Salle Academy.
