I had breakfast this morning with Maxine Room...

Maxine was Principal and Chief Executive at Park Lane College here in Leeds before it became the new Leeds City College and is leaving us to take up the leadership of the Lewisham College in South London. The College appointed Maxine as its new Principal and SHE will be the first black Principal of a general further education college in London, replacing Dame Ruth Silver DBE who is retiring after 17 years having taken the college from a once failing establishment to its current outstanding and Beacon status. Before joining Park Lane College, Maxine was Principal and Chief Executive of Swansea College, a post she held for over four years moving the college from good to great!

Maxine has been a breath of fresh air here in Leeds and she will be missed.
