Passing the Baton– Creating A family Legacy
At the core of the Blue & White Scholar- ship Foundation’s mission is the goal of assisting students to graduate and join the Villanova alumni with the
goal of a leaving a legacy.
One such legacy that continues to Ɵe back to and strength- en the Blue & White Foundation is that of the Seeger fami ly. Longtime Member Bill Seeger (class of ‘58) who served as the Harƞord Connecticut Chapter President throughout the late 1980’s and early 1990’s passed the baton to his daughter Karen Keegan (class of ‘88; Women’s Varsity Soc cer), Christopher (class of ‘89; Villanova Varsity Football), Michael (class of ‘90; Villanova Varsity Men’s Track) and Timothy (class of ‘94; Villanova Varsity Football), all of whom remain active in the Foundation.
Ed and the “love of his life,” Karen
Karen is the proud Mother of McKenna Keegan (class of 2020) and Caroline Keegan (class of 2019). A signiﬁcant source of pride for Mom, as well as the Foundation, is McKenna’s performance for the
Villanova Women’s Varsity Track team. Keegan emerged as one of Villanova’s top competitors in a deep middle- distance group as a sophomore this season. She advanced to the NCAA Championships after racing to a time of 2:05.16 in the ﬁrst national quarterﬁnal heat, and with her appearance in Oregon notched her ﬁrst career outdoor All-America accolade. In addition to her success in the 800 meters this season,
Keegan ran both the 400-meter leg of the distance medley relay and the third leg of the 4×800 relay at the Penn Relays, and has been a part of Championship of America titles in both races in each of her ﬁrst two collegiate seasons.
Bill’s dedication and loyalty to the Blue & White has been passed on to his son Michael, who like Bill, is a Judge for the Foundation and involved in the evaluation process to select scholarship winners for the Blue White Foundation. Strengthening the Villanova community generation after generation after generation – the legacy of the Seeger family grows as does their dedication to helping students through the Blue White Scholarship Foundation
