TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Former St. Mary-of-the-Woods College president Sister Jeanne Knoerle (NUR'-lee) has died at age 85.
Knoerle led the Catholic liberal arts school for women near Terre Haute from 1968 to 1983 and continued as its co-chancellor. The college says she died Monday at the community of nuns.
School officials say Knoerle launched its external degree program in 1973 as a way to educate women who could not attend college in a traditional way. The school now about 1,000 women and men enrolled in its distance-learning classes and about 300 students in its women-only undergraduate campus programs.
Current school President Dottie King tells the Tribune-Star (http://bit.ly/108vAyL ) that Knoerle's work was groundbreaking and that she was an energetic and positive leader.
