TAMPA, Fla. — Ultimate Medical Academy has announced that Cornwall resident Jane Swift has joined the board of directors of the Tampa, Fla.-based nonprofit higher education institution.
Swift, acting governor of Massachusetts from 2001-2003, is currently CEO of Middlebury Interactive Languages and serves as a distinguished visiting lecturer in Leadership Studies at Williams College. She also serves on the boards of several organizations and has a background working with innovative educational providers. Swift received her undergraduate degree from Trinity College and holds several honorary doctorate degrees.
“We’re honored to have Gov. Jane Swift serve on our board of directors,” said UMA Board Chairman Richard J.
