Despite the diversity of its institutions, American higher education can be a small world. For lifelong friends Gayle Hutchinson and Lynn Gangone, the insular nature of their respective careers took on a new meaning.

Hutchinson, who was an ACE Fellow in 2005-06, was formally installed as president of California State University, Chico, on March 3. Gangone, vice president of ACE Leadership, was on hand at the event to deliver remarks to celebrate her friend’s achievement.

Gangone touched on their history growing up together in Connecticut, Hutchinson’s efforts to put herself through college as a first-generation student and their shared careers in higher education.
