Larry Smith and Patricia J. Gannon were recently introduced into the Board of Trustees. As alumni of the university, both individuals should have a sense of how to effectively influence Suffolk in a positive way.
In looking forward to the future, both individuals possess qualities and skills that could allow Suffolk to grow in a monumental way. With a BA in Economics, Gannon is a nonprofit finance leader. Due to this fact, Gannon may be useful in budget spending and working on creating an endowment for Suffolk instead of relying so heavily on student tuition. Her familiarity with long-term sustainability is something that Suffolk is in desperate need of and could benefit from.
Smith is also a great candidate for this issue, especially being a businessman and philanthropist. Already Smith has contributed to the long awaited 20 Somerset building, the new fitness center that opened this semester and athletics. The fitness center is named after Smith and his brother Michael. They are known to be very influential members of the alumni community.
A hopeful future is in store for Suffolk with these new members. The Journal team is looking forward to the changes and influences that they can make and hope that promises are fulfilled.
