Brendan Neal Returns as Springfield College Director of Community RelationsAugust 3, 2011
SPRINGFIELD, Mass., August 3, 2011—Brendan Neal is returning as the director of community relations at Springfield College, effective August 1, 2011.
Neal previously held the position from 2006 until stepping down in June 4, 2010, to become the senior officer-institutional development at Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
“We are pleased to welcome Brendan back home to Springfield College to direct our community and governmental relations,” Springfield College President Richard B. Flynn said. “During his time here, he worked tirelessly to cultivate relationships between the college, its surrounding community, and the city. Both the college and the Greater Springfield area will benefit from his return, particularly in the wake of the June tornado destruction. With Brendan’s assistance, Springfield College will continue to be a part of, and not apart from, the community.”
“I am excited and looking forward to giving back to both Springfield College and the community in which I grew up,” Neal said.
Neal graduated from Springfield College with a bachelor’s degree in political science in 2002 and a master’s degree in health care management in 2010.
