Mission Branch Registrar Kathy Cole retires after 25 years at CMC

Nearly anyone who studied, worked or stopped by 
CMC’s Mission District Branch in the last 25 years was welcomed by Registrar Kathy Cole. The face of the school in the afternoon and evening, Kathy has shaped our community with her positivity, laughter and most importantly, her deep appreciation for what we do. 
Says CMC’s Executive Director Christopher Borg: “With my office located across the hallway from where Kathy worked, I had the frequent opportunity to hear Kathy greet students, faculty, volunteers, and guests at our front office.  
Fitting for a music school, Kathy’s voice carries a melodic quality that often left me smiling at my desk and feeling assured that people felt welcome in our community.  Kathy’s strong belief in CMC’s mission is inspiring and provides insight to much that is special and important at Community Music Center.   I remain profoundly grateful to Kathy for her many years of service at CMC and wish her all the best for a well-deserved retirement.”  Read article.
