Needless to say, there have been other college dignitaries who were impressed with their doctorate degree and have thought to awe others with their achievement.
Kaye Walter came to Paramus while there was still tension existing and emanating from many different directions. Her ability to cope with these problems along with her advanced problem solving talent has enabled her to amicably cope with them.

Although politics did not come into play, this dynamic soft spoken woman has managed to face up to it all with equanimity.
There are definite progressive educational programs designed for the future and B. Kaye Walter, PHD is implementing them.
