As Kim Phipps, President, Messiah College, puts it, "Offering truth-filled candor and grace-filled insight, Snyder has written an engaging memoir that will speak to any individual's personal exploration and embrace of the vocational journey." How does a Mennonite farm girl, whose "closed" Oregon community prescribed a limited role for women and distrusted education, end up a university president? Journey with Lee Snyder as as she explores the surprising and unexpected paths that opened her doors to education and leadership. "As profoundly spiritual as Thomas Merton and Kathleen Norris, as wise about leadership as Margaret Wheatley and Max DePree, Snyder has created an alabaster-box memoir out of which she pours a lifetime of reading, revery, and relationship," says Shirley H. Showalter, Vice-President­-Programs, Fetzer Institute. Meanwhile Ann Hostetler, Editor, A Cappella: Mennonite Voices in Poetry, believes that Snyder's "beautifully written book shows how true leadership arises from the humble ingredients of everyday life met with courage, faith, and imagination." And Karen A. Longman, Professor of Higher Education, Azusa Pacific University, celebrates that "Snyder was a pioneer for many of us as one of the first female chief academic officers. Here she combines her artistry with words and a lifetime of experiences."

About the Author:

Lee Snyder, Virginia and Oregon, lived in West Africa in the late 1960s, stationed at the Qua Ibo Secondary School in the heart of the equatorial rain forest. The family’s move in the early 1970s from the west coast to Virginia for her husband’s job at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU), led to Lee’s graduate work and eventual appointment as Vice President and Academic Dean at EMU. Following 12 years as Dean, Lee accepted the presidency at Bluffton University, Ohio, where she served as its eighth president and first female head for 10 years. Lee continues a variety of assignments with educational organizations, boards of trustees, and the church. She and her husband divide their time between Virginia and Oregon where they maintain residence.
