LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Bellarmine University has a new president.

A ceremony Friday afternoon honored Dr. Susan Donovan as the university's fourth president. She actually started July 1.

Donovan was presented with Bellarmine's mace and chain, the symbols of the university's presidency.

Many also attended the inaugural breakfast Friday morning.

"I am honored and humbled and energized that you have trusted me today with this responsibility of leading this great institution of higher learning into the future," said Dr. Donovan.

She came to the school after spending 32 years working at Loyola University Maryland.

Donovan replaces the university's third president, Dr. Joseph McGowan, who died last year.
