JOHNSON — Margo Warden, director of first-year experience at Johnson State College, has been chosen to receive this year’s Jackie Gribbons Leadership Award, given by Vermont Women in Higher Education.
The Jackie Gribbons award recognizes Vermont female leaders who develop innovative programs, act as mentors and models, and contribute substantially to an institution.
“Margo Warden is the embodiment of positivity. She understands deeply how to engage students, has a built-in compass for social justice, and is one of those leaders who motivates others through her own willingness to roll up her sleeves and cheerfully get the work done,” said Tracy Sherbrook, a VWHE executive board member who works at Lyndon State College.
Warden has worked as director of first-year experience since 2006. She was recognized at a ceremony Oct. 25.
