Kelly (Chapman) Galanis
Class of 1996
“These 40 were chosen, as last year’s were, from a field of roughly 100 nominations,” the magazine reported. “Our five judges agreed that this is a very talented group of individuals, and noteworthy for what they do for a living and how they give back to the community.”
Galanis, 30, worked for the admissions office at Bay Path College before joining Westfield State in March 2005.
Family, friends and Westfield State colleagues nominated Galanis and their letters read, in part, that she is a “caring, selfless individual who never hesitates to lend a hand, to the extra mile or put others first.”
“When faced with a challenge, she handles it with a smile and does all in power to see that the job gets done,” one nominating letter said.
She holds associates and bachelor’s degrees in legal studies and a master’s degree in communications and information management, all from Bay Path College.
Galanis works with many organizations outside her job, including the Bay Path College Alumni Association, Women of Philanthropy of Western Massachusetts, and Massachusetts Women in Public Higher Education.
