Message from the Executive Director
In these challenging times, it’s an inspiration to watch Glendale Community College (GCC) pull together, and to appreciate the excellence around the campus. This issue of Foundation Insider celebrates that excellence starting at the top. The decision to hire Dr. Lindsay as the permanent Superintendent/President by the Board of Trustees was unanimous.
You’ll also read about Professor Larry Byrd and his organic chemistry students, some going back more than 20 years. He had a profound impact on all of their lives, as did our athletic coaches whose students were honored at our recent Hall of Fame dinner. Our own math professor Dr. Sid Kolpas was also honored with the prestigious Hayward Award for Excellence in Education. If that is not enough, how about Glendale College being selected by Glendale Beautiful to receive the Exemplary Campus Award!
Last but definitely not least, it is the work of our Foundation Board that is the greatest cause for celebration. Every member brings intelligence, enthusiasm, hard work and humor to our fundraising efforts during these tough times. Many thanks to each of them, and to the supporters and well-wishers who bring us together as a stronger, more determined community.
