Flora Fasoldt Appointed to Hudson Valley Community College Board of Trustees



Flora Fasoldt of Averill Park has been appointed to the Hudson Valley Community College Board of Trustees by New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.

Fasoldt retired from a 35-year career as a speech and language therapist at Capital Region BOCES in 2018, then worked as a special education intake team coordinator for Capital Region BOCES until 2019. She has served as a consultant for Levay Educational Consultants in Slingerlands since 2019.

Previously, Fasoldt held the positions of Town Supervisor and Town Councilwoman for Sand Lake, in addition to serving as a member of the Rensselaer County Legislature. She also has volunteered for several community and professional organizations, serving as a member of the Commission on Economic Opportunity’s Board of Directors; as Faculty Association Vice President of the Teacher’s Unit for the New York State United Teachers; and as Second Vice Chair of the Rensselaer County Democratic Committee, to name a few.

Fasoldt holds a Bachelor of Science in Communication Disorders and Master of Science in Education from The College of Saint Rose.

“On behalf of the entire board, I’d like to congratulate Flora Fasoldt and welcome her to the Hudson Valley Community College Board of Trustees,” said Board Chairman Neil Kelleher. “I look forward to working with her to serve both Hudson Valley’s students and the Capital Region community at large.”

“Hudson Valley looks forward to working with Flora Fasoldt as the newest member of our Board of Trustees,” said President Roger Ramsammy. “Her experience and expertise in education will surely be a valuable contribution to our board and our mission to continue moving the college forward.”

The college’s 10-member Board of Trustees is appointed by the Governor, who names four members, and the Rensselaer County Legislature, which names five members to serve seven-year terms. One member is elected by the student body for a one-year term.

Founded in 1953, Hudson Valley Community College offers more than 85 degree and certificate programs in three schools: Business and Liberal Arts; Health Sciences; and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM); and an Educational Opportunity Center for academic and career training. One of 30 community colleges in the State University of New York system, it has an enrollment of nearly 11,500 students and is known as a leader in distance learning initiatives and workforce training. Hudson Valley has more than 80,000 alumni.
