All College Meeting 2013


Members of the Springfield College faculty and staff participated in the annual All College Meeting Thursday, Aug. 29 in Dana Gymnasium.  The gathering officially welcomed back the campus community for the new academic year.

This year’s meeting began with Springfield College Trustee and Chair of the Presidential Search Committee John Odierna introducing the new president of the College, Mary-Beth Cooper. 

“From the bottom of my heart, I am thrilled to be here at Springfield College,” said Cooper.  “I want to say thank you to everyone at today’s meeting for all you do for this special place, Springfield College.”

Following her welcoming remarks, Cooper introduced Springfield College President Emeritus Richard B. Flynn, who presented the R. William Cheney Award to Tamie Kidess Lucey ’81 G’82, director of alumni relations.  The Cheney Award is given out annually to a staff member in recognition of their devotion to the Springfield College community and their commitment to the Humanics philosophy.
