Mount Board of Trustees Chair Honored With Cardinal's Award
Feb. 8, 2012 -- Mount Board of Trustees Chair Michael A. Enright was one of five members of the Los Angeles Catholic community honored for extraordinary service to the Church and community at the 23rd annual Cardinal’s Awards Dinner on Feb. 4.
The event was held in the Grand Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland in Hollywood. Enright and the other 2012 honorees — Yolanda Brown, Alex Chaves, Margaret Given and Margaret Romano — bring to 115 the number of men and women honored with the award since 1990.
Enright has been a trustee of the Mount since 1991. After a 35-year career with Arthur Andersen LLP, including 25 years as a tax partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office, he retired in 1997 and joined Chartwell Partners LLC in Century City.
Enright is a graduate of Santa Clara University, UCLA Graduate School of Management and USC Law School. He is an inactive member of the California Bar and an inactive certified public accountant. Enright serves as a trustee of the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Foundation, trustee chair and regent of Loyola High School, and is a member of the Finance Council of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Enright’s deceased wife, Carol, graduated from the College, as did her mother and sister. He recently married Katherine Russell, and between them, they have 10 children. Two of the children received teaching credentials and one received a master’s degree in education from MSMU. Katherine earned a certificate from the Spirituality Center at the Mount’s Doheny Campus. The Enrights enjoy spending time with their family — especially their 16 grandchildren.
Proceeds from the dinner will benefit the construction of a new worship space for Sagrado Corazon y Santa Maria de Guadalupe Church in Cudahy to build a new worship space to accommodate its large number of parishioners.
