|Changing of the Guard|
Following the retirement of Gayle Agostinelli, who has led Annual Giving for the past 16 years, Kellie Dold has been appointed the new Director of Annual Giving in the Office of Institutional Advancement.
“As the new vice president for advancement, it was readily apparent to me that Kellie had been well prepared by Gayle and was immediately ready to step into her new role. She has been very effective for the past six years as our senior annual giving officer. I am confident she will do an excellent job cultivating relationships in our community on behalf of Carroll College,” said Michael Larkin, vice president for advancement.
Dold will take over the reins from Gayle Agostinelli who has worked in the Carroll College Office of Institutional Advancement for 24 years, serving as the Director of Annual Giving for the past 16 years.
“While we celebrate Gayle’s decision to enjoy life and her many activities and interests in retirement, her strong relationships with our alumni and Helena community will be a loss to the Carroll community. Her positive attitude and zeal for her work and her co-workers has been emblematic of her joy for life in all that she does. All of us at Carroll wish her happiness and joy with her family and friends in the well-earned next step of retirement,” said Tom McCarvel, vice president for community relations and facilities.

Annual Constitution Day Lecture - The Anti-Federal Appropriation, Sept. 12, 7 p.m., Trinity Lounge, Carroll College
Sponsored by the Constitutional Studies Center at Carroll College and made possible by a generous gift from the Apgar Foundation, Carroll's Annual Constitution Day lecture will feature Dr.Jeffrey K. Tulis, an associate professor in the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin.
In his lecture titled, “The Anti-Federal Appropriation,” Professor Tulis will explain how Anti-Federalists — those who originally opposed the U.S. Constitution — and their heirs "have exploited the iterative character of The Federalist to gain through interpretation what they lost in ratification of the Constitution regarding federalism, separation of powers, and executive power.”
All students, faculty, staff, and members of the community are invited to attend. This lecture is the first in a series of events designed to bring heightened attention to the tradition of constitutional government.
