After 30 years working devotedly in a number of roles, but most recently as the Director of Student Services for Bay College West Campus, Laura Moloney, has retired as of June 28, 2019. Moloney joined Bay College in 1989 after graduating from UW Green Bay at the original American Martyr’s location. During her time at Bay College she has held roles in admissions, advising, and student activities. She has helped the West Campus grow from a few classrooms in a rented building to a full-fledge campus supporting over 550 students, and expansive community events and trainings.  As an academic advisor she has helped guide and support thousands of students in the Dickinson County area and beyond. 

“Working for Bay College was a wonderful opportunity for me.  Being able to work in higher education, especially in the Dickinson County community, has allowed me to connect with inspiring people and learn a tremendous amount.  I am definitely looking forward to retirement, particularly having more time to spend with my family.” 

Amber Lundberg, who was most recently the Academic Support Coordinator at the West Campus in Iron Mountain, MI will be filling the role of Director of Student Services at Bay West Campus.  Lundberg had the opportunity to mentor with Moloney over the course of the last year and will be serving students through increasing opportunities for engagement, outreach with surrounding school districts and continuing the tradition of holistic, student-centered advising.

Originally a native from Colorado, Lundberg loves green chile, anything outdoors, especially the Rocky Mountains. Growing up, her family was heavily involved in organizations that focused on good works in the community including partnerships with education. When asked about what brought her to the area, “Dickinson County reminds me of my home town. I’ve been blessed with an opportunity to help students succeed and grow in their community and that’s why I choose to live here.”
