Portrait: Dawn Montez

Dawn Montez (BA '91, psychology) attributes her entrepreneurial success to creative, idiosyncratic resourcefulness. At first, Montez didn’t know the first thing about freight management—she acquired MBA skills on the job to build her own freight brokerage firm.
Tim & Diane Madden

Partnering for Change

Diane Madden (PhD '90, education administration) and Tim Madden (BA '74, speech communication, JD '77) employ 3,000 people and serve more than 2,000 residents nationwide, providing residential housing for persons with disabilities. When the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled in 1974 that people with mental disabilities were entitled to live in residential group homes, they started their service from scratch.
