SAN ANTONIO -- Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) announced that Sister Isabel Ball, CDP, has retired after 58 years of service to the University.

Ball graduated from OLLU in 1950, and then entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Divine Providence (CDP) soon after that. She began her teaching career at Our Lady of the Lake College in 1954 as a chemistry instructor. In 1963, she became assistant professor of chemistry, and in 1969, Ball was named the head of the chemistry department. She received her Master of Arts in chemistry and Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Texas at Austin.

She became a full professor of chemistry in 1974, and from 1980-2003, she was the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. In 2003, Ball became the director of Mission Effectiveness, a position she has held through the present. Upon her retirement, she plans to help out in the convent archives and will remain committed to University events.

Her professional accomplishments include being inducted into the San Antonio Women’s Hall of Fame in 1984. Sister Ball’s grant-writing efforts resulted in more than $15 million for OLLU, with some of the funds being used to attain a Title V Grant that was used to update the labs in the University’s Metz Hall.

For her efforts, the undergraduate research lab was dedicated in her honor in 2004.
