New Keene State president welcomes freshmen
The New Hampshire native, who has been living outside of her home state for the past 28 years, wanted the new students to feel at home at Keene State as she does.
"I went from the University of New Hampshire to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Hanover, and in 1985 I went to the University of Vermont, and this is my first time back living in the state. So it's a big deal. I'm excited," Huot said Wednesday.
"My heart hurts, it literally hurts," one freshmen mother, Robin DePaolo of Nashua, told Huot.
Most recently, she served as provost and vice president for academic affairs for six years at the College at Brockport, State University of New York.
"So we want to grow and expand those," Huot said. "And I want to make sure we are sensitive to the regional needs of our workforce and want to provide as any educational experiences as possible to improve the economy."
"It's bigger than last year's class. Our residential halls are full," Huot said.
Huot has a B.S. in medical technology from the University of New Hampshire, an M.S. in medical technology from the University of Vermont, and a Ph.D. in cell and molecular biology from the University of Vermont.
