Faculty, staff and administrators from across Shoreline Community College turned out to wish Humanities Dean
Norma Goldstein well as she prepares to leave the college in retirement. Goldstein is moving to Annapolis, MD, with her husband who is taking a new job there. Her final day on campus will be Dec. 28, 2012 and last day with the college is Jan. 7, 2013.
Goldstein was feted by all who spoke as a feisty champion of excellence, always moving forward toward the goal of helping students.
In her letter of retirement, her notes of program highlights clearly showed a continuing enthusiasm for the work and initiatives started and starting under her watch. Every program under her lengthy title of “Dean of Humanities, Academic Standards, Accreditation, articulation and Transfer, Transitional Programs/Basic Skills and K-12 Relations” received attention in her letter.
While a permanent replacement has not been named, Visual Communications faculty member Kathie Hunt is serving in an interim role.
