Diane McNeilly, vice president of instruction from 1968 to 2000, said she spent her “whole professional life” at the school, and she was excited to recognize the good the college has done for the community.
“I love this place. I love everything about it. It provides a wonderful education; it’s very flexible, and it’s affordable for students,” McNeilly said near displays of memorabilia. “I think it’s time to celebrate what we’ve done for this community.”
