Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. 71

Mr. Daniels is the 12th President of Purdue University. Previously, he served two terms as Indiana’s 49th governor, receiving more votes than any candidate for any public office in the state's history when he was re-elected in 2008. As governor, Daniels spearheaded a host of reforms aimed at strengthening the Indiana economy and improving the ethical standards, fiscal condition, and performance of state government. His conservation efforts set aside record acreages of protected wetlands and wildlife habitats earning him the nickname “The Teddy Roosevelt of Indiana” by the Nature Conservancy.


Daniels came from a successful career in business and government, holding numerous top management positions in both the private and public sectors. He served as CEO of the Hudson Institute and President of Eli Lilly and Company's North American Pharmaceutical Operations. He also served as a senior advisor to President Ronald Reagan and as Director of the Office of Management and Budget under George W. Bush. Daniels earned a bachelor's degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton in 1971 and his law degree from Georgetown in 1979. He is the author of three books. Daniels and his wife Cheri have four daughters.

Mr. Sleet has devoted his entire professional career to the development and delivery of community based services to Chicago’s most vulnerable citizens.

McKinley Community Services, Inc. He has also served in a variety of community volunteer leadership positions, including president of the Community Behavioral Healthcare Association of Illinois and executive committee member of the South Side Branch of the NAACP. Just as he enjoyed his years with the Princeton University Glee Club, he has enjoyed singing with a number of choirs, most notably, the Knights of Music Male Chorus.


Marion lives in the Chatham community and has been married for over 42 years to his wife, Camille. They have two adult sons, Michael, a surgeon who lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and daughter, and Brian, an Illinois attorney who is the Chief of Staff to the Alderman of the Sixth Ward.
