Snyder to return to LCSC campus on Tuesday
Milton Snyder will return to his alma mater Lewis-Clark State College to deliver his recently published autobiography “Maybe Milton Should Work in the Woods,” on Tuesday, Oct. 20, and reconnect with the college that he says changed everything for him.
Snyder, 80, graduated from the college when it was known as Northern Idaho College of Education with a degree in Education. He was school superintendent in Anacortes, Marysville and Federal Way –all in Washington – for many years. He currently is a national senior consultant for five corporations for education delivery systems.
Recently, he decided to publish his memoir “Maybe Milton Should Work in the Woods,” which is about his early years on an Idaho farm and the impact education had on his life. A Weippe native, Snyder says he struggled with classes in high school. His book tells stories of challenges, successes and a rise to educational heights surpassing the expectations of his classmates, a high school teacher and even his parents.
Snyder will meet with LCSC President Dene Thomas and Foundation Executive Director Lori Rock-Skelton to deliver his book on Tuesday.
“We are looking forward to being with an old friend and a pillar from our past,” Rock-Skelton says. “Reconnecting with his success makes us proud, but being named as part of the reason for it is truly a blessing.
“LCSC has found a permanent place in Dr. Snyder’s book and we are proud to have been a part of his journey to success.”
