AUBURN — The guest speaker at the next meeting of the Lewiston-Auburn Rotary Club will be Auburn superintendent Katy Grondin.

The event will take place from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, July 12, at the Village Inn, at 165 High St.

Grondin is the Superintendent for the Auburn School Department. Her love for the Auburn community began when her family moved to Maine in the summer of 1979. She graduated from Edward Little High School in 1982 and went to the University of Southern Maine to become a teacher.

Since becoming a teacher for the Auburn School Department in 1988, she has served in several leadership roles before becoming superintendent in 2011.

The Auburn School Department is focused on its Vision 2020 and the building of a new Edward Little High School. Grondin is a member of the LA Metro Chamber Board and serves on the Education and Workforce Development Committee. She facilitates a business roundtable, which connects educators and business leaders, in order to collaborate to best educate students to be career and college ready after graduation.

Grondin was honored in 2007 as the National Distinguished Principal of the Year and represented the State of Maine in Washington D.C.

Guests are welcome, and no reservations are required. For more information, contact club president Thomas MacDonald at 207-333-4588, follow on Facebook, or see
