AD honored for work with women’s sports

December 13, 2007

Regis College athletic director, Marybeth Lamb, was honored with Boston College’s Heights Award on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Lamb, who has been at Regis since summer 2002, earned her bachelor’s and master’s of science in physical education at SUNY-Brockport (NY). She also earned an MBA at Simmons College in Boston.

“The Regis College community is proud that Marybeth Lamb is being honored in this way,” said college president Mary Jane England ’59, MD. “She has done a fine job integrating athletics with wellness and a sense of the whole health of the person. This kind of commitment and dedication for the sake of students are what Regis College is all about, whether in athletics or academics or service. Also, having our AD recognized at a BC-Holy Cross event is particularly delightful to me. The bottom line for all our colleges, of course, is the integrally human intellectual and social education we provide so that our students become contributing members of various communities, and well-organized athletic programs help achieve that end.”

For the second year, Boston College and the Massachusetts State Lottery teamed up to recognize men and women in Massachusetts who have contributed to the community through women’s athletics.

The Heights Award honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the development and advancement of women’s sports and whom through influence or personal achievement, inspire girls and women. This award is earned by long-term commitment, demonstration and dedication to the growth of women’s athletics.

The award was presented to Lamb, a Natick resident and native of East Islip, N.Y., at half time of the Boston College Eagles vs. the Crusaders of Holy Cross basketball game at Boston College, Dec. 5.
