Altieri has worked with six college presidents

March 25, 2002|BY ANDREW SCHOTZ

Guy Altieri attached a six-page essay to the three-page resume he sent to the presidential search committee at Hagerstown Community College.

"In 29 years of community college work," he wrote near the start, "I have reported to six very different presidents and worked with many others in doing accreditation and other cross-institutional work. Through these experiences I have learned that to be the 'ideal' president one needs the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job, the political astuteness of Machiavelli and the strength of Hercules, but possibly most important, the persistence and tolerance of a SAINT."

His rsum includes a photo of himself and mentions that he is: "Male. 5'9", 185 lbs. Excellent health."

Altieri, 51, and his wife, Sue, have two children: a son, Ashley, 20, and a daughter, Alice, 19.
