What a difference a month makes!



This juicy tidbit was brought to our attention yesterday by one of our loyal readers:

A month after the IVC leadership recommended rejection of Amy Grimm's tenure bid, the same people are now citing her work to strengthen their report on business partnerships to be presented at next week's board meeting. Some wags wonder how they'll be able to explain this about face to the board.  Other wags speculate that they won't even try.

What a difference a month makes!

From the board agenda distributed by the Chancellor:
     Amy Grimm, having worked in the museum field in New York, South Carolina, Texas and California, has numerous professional colleagues who have provided valuable insight for program development. Additionally, by working with professional organizations such as the American Alliance of Museums and the College Art Association, as well as more local and regional affiliates, she has broadened and deepened local connections and potential partnerships for IVC’s proposed program in Museum Studies. She states, “… the Applied Museum Studies Advisory Committee members are committed to collaborations that would include work for our students. Recently I’ve had specific requests for interns from the following Advisory Committee Members: Arts Orange County-Rick Stein, Executive Director; Dawson Cole Fine Art, Rich MacDonald, Owner, L.A. Municipal Art Gallery; Hollyhock House-Sara L. Cannon, Director, Museum Education and Tours Program, Art Curator; and Orange County Center for Contemporary Art-Stephen Anderson, Director. I have directed my students to these opportunities.”

Too funny. You'd think their heads would explode trying to rationalize this to themselves and others. I hope someone ask pointed follow-up questions at the board meeting...

I enjoyed hearing that song play in not one - but two hallways on campus today.

FYI - the same agenda has an item about the retirement/resignation/ end of employment of Saddleback's Amy Ahearn. Does anyone know anything about that?

Oh my. Only at IVC. Last month we couldn't wait to get rid of you, this month, kiss, kiss, kiss.

Did Glen's friend get tenure? I think they're longtime neighbors and went to Hawaii together?

You don't have to worry about Glen's friend - he's been taken care of from the very beginning, I expect.

That's nice.

I occasionally Google her name, but nothing turns up for quite some time now. I too ask: does anyone know anything about Amy Ahearn?

The reason for the about face is the author. Werle is truthful and doesn't succumb to that less-than-honorable team, CJLDA. They worked together to get rid of Amy, a very good instructor. Who knows why? Jealousy? Perceived threat? As usual, Rocky just goes along.
