In Praise Of John Jablonski.

Many of us felt that John Jablonski, the acting President of Fulton-Montgomery Community College should have been named president. His skills as an administrator, his long tenure at the college and his lifetime connection with the area seemed to make him suitable for the job. But when the trustees of the college announced the three finalists this week, Jablonski was not among them.

His response was one of great humility. He says he plans to work with the new president and simply wants the best for the college. I was impressed with his response. Many people would have responded in a different fashion.

I can still remember Jablonski's kindness toward my son when he first enrolled at FMCC. Other administrators in other colleges have not been so kind.

Jablonski is an asset to the college and community.
