It's always bittersweet when a community leader leaves town. All the more so when that leader has been so effective in steering the lives of college youth. Dr. Dawn Lindsay, superintendent/president of Glendale Community College, is moving on to take the reins of a community college back East. Glendale's loss will be Maryland's gain.
Lindsay's last public appearance was at a farewell party in her honor Tuesday (June 26) at the Wine Cave in Montrose. “I leave with a lot of gratitude,” Lindsay said. Her college co-workers and supporters were out in force. Jill Lewis, college instructional services manager, was there with her boss, Mary Mirch, vice president of instructional services. Also present was the right-hand team to Lindsay, her secretary Sally Holmes and administrative assistant Anike Shishian.
More college VIPs were Foundation Executive Director Lisa Brooks, Jewel Price, dean of student services; Andrea Verstraete, director of governmental external relations; college Police Department Sgts. Samir Abou-Rass and Erin Kurasz; and college Trustee Tony Tartaglia.
