A Board Member's Stint In The Chief Executive's Chair
Share this article:
When I became the acting president of Hamilton College in 1999, I already knew a lot about the college. I am a 1966 Hamilton graduate, the parent of a former student, and I have served for 12 years on the college's governing board. Still, when Hamilton President Eugene Tobin took a much-deserved sabbatical, I learned more about Hamilton during my six months in the presidency than in all my previous time associated with the college. Much of what I learned will make me- and, I expect, my fellow board members- better in the future.
