Michelle Cobb Fitzgerald of Greenville has been promoted to the position of administrative assistant to the president.

Fitzgerald joined the staff of Mary Baldwin in 1996. At that time she worked as trustee liaison and secretary in the office of the president. She earned her bachelor of arts from Mary Baldwin in 2000 and most recently served as administrative assistant for development and trustee relations, working out of both the president’s office and the development office.

“Michelle and I will continue to serve the college, working together now as a new team,” said Cynthia H. Tyson, president of Mary Baldwin. “Michelle will provide Mary Baldwin University with the leadership support expected from the president’s office.”

Mary Baldwin University, with a main campus in Staunton, Virginia, and five regional centers, excels in providing leadership training, character development, and career preparation with a strong academic foundation. A multi-faceted liberal arts college, Mary Baldwin offers three residential programs for women – the Traditional Program for Women, the Program for the Exceptionally Gifted, and the Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership – as well as coeducational, nonresidential bachelor’s and master’s degree programs. Mary Baldwin offers the B.A. and/or the B.S. in 32 majors, the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) with K-8 emphasis, the Master of Letters (M.Litt.) and Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature in Performance, and post-graduate teaching licensure (PGTL). The oldest women’s college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church U.S.A., Mary Baldwin was founded in 1842 and was the first women’s college to be granted a circle of the national leadership honor society Omicron Delta Kappa. It is one of only 262 colleges and universities to shelter a chapter of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa honor society.
