Ann Marie Rancourt Academic Affairs: It is with great pleasure that we would like to introduce Dr. Margaret Walsh as the new director of the College Honors Program. We look forward to her building on the work of Dr. Beatriz Torres and Dr. Helen Frink, and we’re sure that much progress will be made under her leadership. In her time at Keene State, Dr. Walsh has demonstrated a strong commitment to academic excellence and a constant willingness to serve and to lead in multiple roles on this campus. Her success in working with students, colleagues, and the general public makes her an excellent ambassador for the program. The appointment begins in January 2010, and will end in May 2012.

Thanks to Dr. Anne-Marie Mallon, chair of the search committee, and to members of the committee, Shari Bemis, William Stroup, Peter Roos, Donna Smyth, Kent Drake-Deese, Karen Honeycutt, and Allison Shufelt (student rep) for creating a rigorous search process and conducting a successful search.

We would also like to acknowledge Dr. Frink’s successful efforts over the last 18 months in shepherding the program through the college approval process, as well as all the work she has done with the Advisory Council and many offices on campus in establishing processes that have contributed and will continue to contribute to the program’s success. Thank you, Dr. Frink.
