Your Alumni Association
Letter from the Alumni Association Council President
Dear Bay Path Alumni:
I am excited and humbled to serve as your next president of the Alumni Association
Council effective July 1, 2020. I owe a debt of gratitude to Lynn Pellerano, who has led
the council with vision, dedication, and Bay Path boldness! I have big shoes to fill and
am honored to receive the torch from Lynn to carry on the alumni legacy.
As is true with so many of us, Bay Path has played such an integral role in shaping our
lives. From stepping out of our comfort zones and trying out for sports teams to taking
a leadership position, dancing the electric slide on Campus Day, or traveling the world
for the first time, Bay Path has been there for us.
I remember the excitement of my first day of class, the first Capitals of the World
trip that I went on, and volunteering at the Women’s Leadership Conference. Bay Path’s
education for me reached far beyond my classroom walls. As alumni, we want to
support the next generation of students so their educational experience reaches far
beyond their classroom walls and allows them to realize their dreams!
This summer, we will welcome President Sandy Doran to our campus. We will show her
the diverse richness that is the Bay Path community. We will teach her our beloved
traditions and, with her, make new ones. It’s an exciting time for all of us. Let us
stay close to our community and each other and continue to make Bay Path an
Lastly, for the past 25 years, Dr. Leary has left her mark on the Bay Path campus and
on the lives of all of us. To say she will be greatly missed is an understatement. In the
true spirit of the legacy Dr. Leary leaves on campus, we will continue to perform
random acts of kindness and use our time, talent, and treasure to better the Bay Path
community and the world at large.
Whether you are an alumni from the residential campus, the One Day or The American
Women’s College programs, or one of our many graduate programs, I hope you will
join me in supporting the next generation of students so their educational experience
will allow them to reach for the stars!
