Amherst Select Board members salute Information Specialist Gabriel Owen, at the annual Massachusetts Municipal Association conference. On Friday, Mr. Owen was named the 2016 winner of the Nancy Galkowski Leadership Legacy Fund. Galkowski was Arlington's Deputy Town Manager for 23 years before becoming Town Manager of her hometown Holden in 2010. She passed away in February 2013 after mentored many young managers during her career. A scholarship fund has been established in her name as a means of helping municipal managers attend high-quality professional development programs. Gabriel Owen (AC'14) will attend the next International City Management Association Conference and aspires to be a future Town Manager of Amherst.
