Lynn Spaight works on special projects for Executive Director Catherine Frank, helped with the CREW program and assisted during the transition of College for Seniors manager. She enjoys having a variety of projects and she brings a new perspective, “fresh eyes” to everything she is doing. Lynn was executive assistant to Chancellor Anne Ponder for the past nine years and assisted Chancellor Grant through her early transition. Lynn says, “Coming to OLLI has been a wonderful opportunity to try something different and use my experience in new ways. The people are great and I love coming to work every day.”
Lynn and her husband, Tom, moved to Asheville from Iowa City, Iowa, where Lynn was program director at Humanities Iowa (the state humanities council). She and Tom live in Weaverville and enjoy attending music festivals and performances of all kinds, and sampling the local beers and cuisine.
