Music scholar Dr. George Harne has been appointed the new president of New Hampshire’s College of Saint Mary Magdalen. “Our best years are ahead of us,” he declared.
“I am humbled by the unanimous support of the Board of Trustees,” said Harne in a Feb. 7 announcement.
“The College of Saint Mary Magdalen has a future that is at once bright and filled with hope,” he continued. “We are committed to renewing Catholic higher education through our program in the liberal arts and we look forward to serving the Church regionally and nationally through our new Liturgical and Catechetical Institutes.”
Harne has served as the college’s academic dean since 2009. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University and master’s degrees from Princeton, St. John’s College and the University of Washington.
