Coastal Senior College is pleased to introduce three new Board of Directors members. The college looks forward to their active participation in this all-volunteer organization, established in 2001 as part of the Maine Senior College network of 17 senior colleges statewide. The mission of CSC is to “enrich the lives of seniors through the joy of lifelong learning.” Ann Nesslage, Marianne Pinkham, and Robert Stephan all bring valuable experience to their roles as CSC board members.

Ann Nesslage, who lives in Bremen, is a graduate of Vassar College and holds an MFA in British Literature from Bryn Mawr College. Nesslage chaired the English department at Choate Rosemary Hall School in Connecticut and taught courses in British, Irish, and Welsh literature there. This fall she will offer a CSC course titled Old English Poetry: Heroes, Monsters, and the Ice Cold Sea.

Marianne Pinkham, who lives in Damariscotta Mills, is Regional Director of both the Coastal Community Center and the Knox County Aging and Disability Resource Center. Pinkham holds a masters degree in Education and Business Administration from the University of Maine. She serves on several local boards and advisory councils, and runs the box offices for DaPonte String Quartet and Salt Bay Chamberfest.

Robert Stephan, who lives in Bremen, is a graduate of U. Wisconsin Law School. His legal career included private practice and serving as in-house counsel with publicly-traded corporations, such as General Mills, Inc. He was active in many community based organizations in Connecticut; he is a member of Damariscotta/Newcastle Rotary Club and Mid-Coast Audubon.

Coastal Senior College offers intellectual stimulation, good company, and fun through daytime classes and special events for seniors throughout Lincoln and Knox counties.
