What does the future hold for North Shore Community College, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary next year?
I know, if you are going to ask me what is my major challenge, it’s truly the focus on the Lynn campus and expanding and developing that campus.
With the coming of casinos to the region, is your background working with casinos in Atlantic City a plus?
I have worked with the casino industry very closely. ... There is going to be a need for a workforce that is prepared to understand the casino industry. It’s a bit different than other industries. It has the skills in terms not only what happens on casino floors, but also in the other auxiliary services — the restaurants, the retail industry that will come with it. But also, like any business, they need their accountants, they need their marketing people, they need their workforce at both the entry level and above to make that casino successful.
