Newman CCHS Adds Alumni to Hall of Fame
January 21, 2021
STERLING—Newman Central Catholic High School here will add four newcomers to its alumni Hall of Fame during Catholic Schools Week this year.
The four new Hall of Famers will be announced — one a day — to Newman students next week.
Trish Koehler Senneff, Newman Class of 1977, earned a law degree from Drake University. She was the first female elected as Whiteside County State’s Attorney, first female presiding judge in the 14th circuit and first female Whiteside County Bar Association president. 
For Newman, she has sponsored the Trish Koehler Senneff college scholarship for the past 10 years. 
Sister Rosemary Keegan, Ph.D., is being honored posthumously.
In 1982, two days after being beaten and left for dead in a Denver social service center, she asked that her take-home test for her doctoral degree be mailed to her professor. Her recovery took three years, but she eventually returned to work. She died in 2006, after writing her autobiography, “Like Nun Other.” 
Daniel Mccue graduated from Newman in 1994 and completed his Ph.D. in educational leadership from Spaulding University in 2020.  
When he decided to make education his career,  he moved to Louisville, Ky., where he teaches math and engineering courses at a Catholic high school. 
Kari Morris Carr was the valedictorian of the Newman Class of 1996. She completed her Ph.D. in educational leadership and policy at Indiana University. 
Carr is a teacher, an educational researcher and volunteer. She and her husband, Tony, have five children.
