been at BSC since 1997, for her stellar teaching, service on almost every college committee, commitment
to interdisciplinary research, and her “levelheadedness and keen intelligence.” The college also conveyed an
honorary doctor of letters to Linda Flaherty-Goldsmith, who recently served as BSC’s chief of staff.
