Community Driven: Lyn Simmons '03
When Lyn Simmons '03 first came to the Longmeadow campus in 2001, she had no idea that she would return fifteen years later as Longmeadow’s Town Manager. Upon graduating with a Legal Studies degree, Lyn was offered a job with the Springfield law firm that was also her intern site, but it didn’t take long for her to realize that a big law firm wasn’t where she belonged. She yearned to work directly with clients and to make a real difference. Soon, she found herself in an area she had never before considered: municipal government. That change in industry has led to a lifelong career filled with a passion for making a difference for the residents and business owners of the community which she helps lead.
