In recognition of the school district’s 75th anniversary, Grove City College President and Pittsburgh native Paul J. McNulty ’80 will be enshrined as a member of the inaugural class of 11 inductees in the Baldwin-Whitehall School District’s Distinguished Highlander Alumni Hall of Fame on May 2. The award was designed in partnership with the Baldwin-Whitehall Educational Foundation (BWEF) to recognize the significant personal and professional achievements of Baldwin-Whitehall School District alumni.
“The program recognizes those who have achieved significant professional success and rendered exceptional service to our communities,” Anthony R. Graham, president of the foundation, which serves as an academic booster club.
“They are the people who make the world a better place,” Lindsay Bonetti, a sixth-grader at Harrison Middle School, said.
McNulty, a 1976 graduate of the Pittsburgh area high school, is the ninth president of Grove City College and a former U.S. Deputy Attorney General. He has served as a federal prosecutor and congressional counsel, and is Of Counsel in the global law firm of Baker & MacKenzie where he built the firm’s business ethics and investigations practice for the past seven years. Other inductees into the Hall of Fame will include a former mayor of Baldwin, a biomedical engineer, a former Navy SEAL, a pair of CEOs, an Antarctic researcher and U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch, a 1952 graduate.
“It is an honor to be among so many accomplished and deserving fellow alumni. After 30 years in Washington DC, this award is a wonderful reminder of where my path began – the Pittsburgh region and Grove City College. I remember the faculty and my fellow students at Baldwin High School with great fondness, and am truly blessed to be able to return to my roots in service to our future leaders and the community at-large,” said McNulty.
