Dr. Orinthia Montague, Vice Present of Student Affairs at Normandale Community College, was recently named one of 15 fellows with the Thomas Lakin Institute for Mentored Leadership (Lakin Institute). The Presidents' Round Table (PRT), a national association dedicated to supporting African American leaders and students in community colleges, presents the Lakin Institute annually. 
"The 2016 Lakin Cohort is an outstanding group of leaders who will deeply benefit from this experience," said Dr. Kirk A Nooks, Dean of the Thomas Lakin Institute for Mentored Leadership. "With the complex leadership challenges we are experiencing now, and in the future, this group will be able to demonstrate that community colleges are in good hands." Hosted this year in St. Paul, Minnesota by the Minnesota State System, the Lakin Institute seeks African-American participants whose experience and credentials indicate they are ready to attain the highest academic positions. The program is an opportunity for open dialogue with chancellors, presidents, and CEOs. It covers all aspects of academic leadership.
