Governor Mike Pence Names Alum, Mary Beth Bonaventura ’76 Director of Child Services

by Katie Bradley | Feb 06, 2013
Governor Mike Pence has named Marian University alumnus, Mary Beth Bonaventura as the director of the Department of Child Services. 

Bonaventura will join Pence's administration as director of the Department of Child Services. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, most recently serving as senior judge of the Lake Superior Court, Juvenile Division--one of the toughest juvenile court systems in the state. Bonaventura was appointed senior judge in 1993 by then-Governor Evan Bayh after having served more than a decade as Magistrate in the Juvenile Court. 

Since the start of her career in the juvenile court, Judge Bonaventura has been recognized for her dedication and outstanding service to children. In 2008, Governor Mitch Daniels appointed Bonaventura as a member of the Indiana Commission on Disproportionality in Youth Services. In 2009, she was named chair of the Civil Rights of Children Committee for the Indiana State Bar Association and the chief justice appointed Bonaventura as chair of the Child Welfare Improvement Committee.

"Judge Bonaventura is uniquely qualified to lead the state's Department of Child Services and help to protect Hoosier children from abuse and neglect," said Governor Pence. "She is a strong leader who has an impeccable reputation of integrity and compassion for children."

Bonaventura received a bachelor of arts in psychology from Marian University and served on its Board of Trustees from July 2010 to July 2011. Her daughter, Emily Medved '05, also graduated from Marian University.
