During Women's History Month, we would like to celebrate one of our own, Teresa Nolet a graduate of La Reine High School Class of 1974.
Teresa Nolet attended MIT where her class was about 30% women. While at MIT, she was a GM scholar-intern and worked two summers for General Motors. She earned a bachelor's degree in Materials Science and Engineering and a master's degree in Ceramics. Upon graduation, she joined Corning Incorporated as a Metallurgical Engineer in the corporate engineering group. After ten years in Corning, NY, the Nolet family (including two daughters) relocated to Corning's Harrodsburg, Kentucky plant.
Teresa held positions such as process engineering supervisor, project manager in Corning's Display Technologies Division, and technical training manager, where she established and managed the Knowledge Development organization. She also had two expat assignments and lived in Taichung, Taiwan, from 2008 to 2015 and again from December 2017 to December 2019.
Teresa retired in October 2020 after 41 years with Corning, and as the pandemic eases, she is starting to get involved in volunteer opportunities in her community of Danville, Kentucky. She is excited about the La Reine Science & Innovation Center's new possibilities at Bishop McNamara High School.
