Members of the MWCC community gathered to wish long-serving administrator Robin Duncan much success and happiness in her future endeavors. Duncan, who is pursuing a doctorate in leadership from Antioch University, and her husband, David, who served for many years as corporate vice president of facilities and support services at HealthAlliance Hospital in Leominster, are relocating to Providence, RI this fall to pursue new career aspirations.
Duncan joined MWCC two decades ago when she was hired to manage the conversion of the college’s under-utilized 60,000 square foot gym into a thriving, self-supporting, community fitness and wellness center. Since then, she has held several key positions, both at the college and in the community. Most recently, she has served as senior advisor to the president, following four years as Vice President of Marketing and Communications.
President Daniel Asquino spoke of Duncan’s accomplishments and expressed gratitude on behalf of the entire MWCC community for her leadership and campus initiatives.
“Every single job that Robin has done over the past 20 years she has done with precision and excitement,” he said. “You give her a task and she gets the job done. It’s just been fantastic to work with her.”
For the past 24 years, the Duncans have made their home in Gardner, where they raised their sons Sean and Michael. The couple has been active volunteers serving many North Central Massachusetts organizations. Robin continues to serve on the MWCC Foundation Board of Directors.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with all of my Mount Wachusett colleagues in some capacity over the years,” Duncan said. “I feel that I grew up at MWCC.”
