Former Ohlone College Administrator Nominated to Sports Hall of Fame
Dr. Anne Golseth, former Vice President of Student Services at Ohlone College, will be inducted into the California Community College on Athletics (COA) statewide Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday, April 1, 2004. The ceremony will be the highlight of the COA's annual convention held at the Burbank Airport Hilton Hotel in Burbank, CA.
Ohlone Community College nominated Golseth to receive the award based on her outstanding efforts to improve and enhance the quality of athletic competition in California's community colleges. The Sports Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed in California community college athletics.
"She is a true pioneer," said Dr. Lisa Waits, Vice President of Student Services at Ohlone. "As a college administrator and as a COA leader, Anne increased the visibility and support of all athletes, statewide, especially female athletes. Anne supported athletes through consistent focus on advancing athletic facilities, academic resources provided to student athletes, and support to the individual coaches, trainers and athletic directors."
Golseth served as the Vice President of Student Services at Ohlone Community College from 1977 to 1997. During her tenure as Vice President, she actively supported and promoted student athletes through various positions she held as an executive leader of the Commission on Athletics.
Among other honors, Golseth has served on the National Board of Directors for the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA); served as Regional Coordinator of the California Community College Chief Student Services Administrators Association; and was a member of the Association of California Community College Administrators. She was also awarded the Scott Goodnight Award for outstanding performance as a Vice President of Student Services from the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) in 1995.
Since retiring from Ohlone College, Golseth has remained active in the community by volunteering for organizations, which include the Pets Lifeline Animal Shelter, Chabot Space & Science Center and the Oakland Museum.
