The Mount's Office of Alumni Affairs will show alumni profiles
of some of our alumni here. We are very proud of the
accomplishments and hard work of our former students.
Please stop back, as we update these frequently.
Svoboda, Class of 1967
Dolores Alfano Svoboda (Dee) was not a traditional student when
she attended Mount Saint Mary College in its earliest days,
graduating with her bachelor’s degree and New York State teaching
certification in 1967. But then traditional is hardly a word that
describes any aspect of her life.
Today, Dee lives with her husband Charles (Chick) Svoboda in
Clearwater, Florida. They spend their days flying a Cessna 182
high-performance airplane over the Gulf of Mexico for the Coast
Guard Auxiliary and Civil Air Patrol. It’s a rather
non-traditional retirement lifestyle.
