Harsh honored for service to Governor

(June 7, 2007) - Michael Harsh, humanities instructor at Hagerstown Community College, was recently recognized by Gov. O’Malley for his contributions as a member of O’Malley’s Transition Team for Higher Education.

The team, made up of 50 higher education leaders from throughout the state, met from December 2006 through March 2007.

“It was a very rewarding experience to be able to work with Maryland's education leaders after over 30 years in the profession,” said Harsh.

The transition team produced a document outlining higher education’s role in Gov. O’Malley’s One Maryland initiative in regard to higher education’s quality, effectiveness, access, affordability, and accountability.
