NewsMarlboro College Welcomes Three to Staff
MARLBORO, VT Marlboro College recently welcomed Rebecca Bartlett as the new bookstore manager, James Fein as assistant library director, and Sherry Adams as meal checker.
Bartlett is a 1979 alumna of Marlboro College who focused her undergraduate studies on the "History of American Public Education." She worked in Brattleboro-area schools -- including Brattleboro Union High School -- for several years before changing fields. She worked at the Book Cellar in Brattleboro from 1988 to 1992, then went on to be the office manager at the Northeast Recycling Council for eight years. Bartlett also spent 14 years on the board of the Friends of Music in Guilford, a volunteer organization.
Fein received his B.A. in Russian and in East European studies from San Diego State University. Before pursuing his master's degree in library science at Rutgers University, he worked as a flight attendant for Pan Am, worked in the transportation field with UPS, and then became a transportation manager for the scrap metal recycling industry. Most recently, Fein served as a librarian at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. He was attracted to the educational philosophy of Marlboro College, and jumped at the opportunity when the assistant director position became open.
A mother of two and grandmother of one, Adams has served as president of Whitingham's Ladies Benevolent Society for more than ten years. Founded in 1858, the Society is the oldest consecutively run organization in Whitingham. It holds raffles, suppers, and tag sales in order to raise money for the needy. Adams' commitment to community involvement fits in well at Marlboro College, where she works in the dining hall, helping to provide meals to Marlboro's students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
