Patricia Flynn: From the Corridors of LCHS, to the Hallowed Halls of Academia, Corporate Boardrooms and UN Committees

February 19th, 2014

Following her graduation from Classical, Patricia Flynn, Class of ‘68’ went on to further her education in economics. Her degrees include a BA in Economics from Emmanuel College in 1972, a MA in Economics from Boston University (BU) in 1973, and a PhD in Economics from BU in 1980. Today, Pat is recognized as a mover and shaker in the fields of corporate governance, technological change and gender equality. She exemplifies the best of so many Classical graduates who have used their energy, talents, and knowledge to make this a better community, city, nation, and world to live in.

Pat is currently the Trustee Professor of Economics and Management at Bentley University, where she served as the Dean of the McCallum Graduate School of Business from 1992 to 2002. Her teaching and research have focused on technology-based economic development, the roles and responsibilities of corporate directors, and women in business. Her books and articles have been cited in a variety of media including The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Business Week, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Irish Times, and Harvard Business Review. Pat also has testified before Congress and appeared on NBC’s Today Show discussing the impacts of technological change on jobs and workers.

When not teaching or writing, Pat has brought her knowledge and understanding of the business world and higher education to a variety of corporate and not-for-profit boards. She currently serves on the mutual funds board of Columbia Funds, and has been director of the Boston Fed Bank Corp, U.S. Trust, and the Federal Savings Bank. Examples of her leadership service on not-for-profit boards include the: The Mass Taxpayers Foundation, New England Baptist Hospital, the Mass Technology Collaborative, and the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston.

Today, Pat takes great pride in her ongoing involvement with the United Nations initiative PRME (Principals for Responsible Management Education), whose mission is to develop a new generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex challenges facing business and society in the 21st century. Launched at the 2007 UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in Geneva, Switzerland, the PRME initiative now includes over 500 business schools in 80 countries. Pat is co-chair of the PRME Working Group on Gender Equality, with two individuals from the United Kingdom and Canada. The Working Group’s first project was to create a Global repository of resources to help faculty incorporate gender issues into their courses and research. Pat’s current PRME activities include co-editing two books on lessons learned and Raffle Fundraiser a challenges that remain in integrating gender issues into management education, and into the workplace.

Despite her involvement in the academic world, her extensive time devoted to writing and research, her leadership role within numerous private and non-profit organizations, and her work to help create an equitable and effective global business environment, Pat has not forgotten her Lynn Classical roots. Pat is the sponsor of the Patricia M. Flynn Scholarship awarded each year to a Classical senior going on to Bentley University. If there is no Classical student going to Bentley, it is awarded to a senior going to a college or university majoring in a business related field. Whenever possible, Pat takes the time out of  her busy schedule to come to the LCHS Alumni Awards night to personally present her scholarship.

From The Sandlots to World Series Championships

May 5th, 2010

Would you believe that a Classical graduate played on not one but two World Series Championship ball teams? Well it’s true. Robert Dreyer, Class of 1938 holds that distinction.

Bob has a love of playing ball that dates back to his early years playing sandlot ball in his neighborhood and at the summer YMCA Camp Rotary. Bob displayed his baseball talent at Classical as a hard throwing pitcher and right fielder on the Rams 1936, 37, and 38 baseball teams. During the non-baseball seasons, you would find Bob on the sidelines as a Classical cheerleader. By the end of his time at Classical, he rose to the position of Head Cheerleader. Following graduation from Classical, Bob unsuccessfully tried out as a picture for the Red Sox in 1941.

Bob continued his love affair with baseball after being drafted into the Army Air force in March of 1941 were he became an Air Traffic Controller serving at many Army Airbases throughout the States – “I played ball and directed airway traffic at all the stops along the way”. Following his discharge from the Army Air Corps in Dec. 1945, Bob’s involvement with playing ball got lost along the way, or so it seemed, when several years passed before he found his way back to the diamond.

Then in 1986, following his retirement, Bob and his wife Nancy moved to North Fort Myers, Fl. where Bob rekindled his love of “playing ball”. In 1988 at the age of 68 he tried out for the Lake Fairways seasonal softball league for those over 55 and made the team. By 2002 his softball career had brought him to the Fort Meyers Over 80’s Softball League. In 2002 and 2003 his team qualified and won back to back championships in the 80 Plus World Series Softball Tournament in Des Monies, Iowa. Sad to say that Bob’s outstanding softball career was suddenly ended by a serious auto accident in2006. He is now ok and is concentrating his efforts in mastering the more gentle game of golf.

Two World Series Championships, not bad for a 89 year old kid who learned his skills on the ball diamonds of Lynn, Ma.
