Bel Air woman named college director

The board of trustees of Baltimore County Community Colleges has appointed Karen A. Stout of Bel Air as director of institutional development at Dundalk Community College.

Ms. Stout previously was director of development at Harford Community College.

After graduating from the University of Delaware with a bachelor arts degree in English and journalism in 1982, Ms. Stout was director of communications for the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce in Newark, Del., where she established the organization's public relations department.

Two years later, she joined Harford Community College as an admissions counselor, eventually assuming responsibilities as the college's director of community relations and development.

While supervising the publicity and graphics operations at HCC, she wrote Harford's first Strategic Plan for Action and implemented the college's annual marketing plan.

She also produced the college's first recruitment "viewbook," which earned a 1990 Paragon award from the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations, an affiliate of the American Association of Community Colleges, and was selected to the 1990 AACC Leaders Program, an international training program for women in community college administration.

Ms. Stout earned a master's degree in business administration from the University of Baltimore and is a doctoral candidate in educational leadership at the University of Delaware.

A former head field hockey coach at HCC, Ms. Stout was a member of the 1980 Olympic Field Hockey Training Squad.

She plays for the Southeast Women's Field Hockey Team, an all-star team of post-graduate college players. The Rev. Charles E. Copeland has been reappointed by Governor William Donald Schaefer to Harford Community College's board of trustees.

Mr. Copeland's five-year term began July 1. He first served on the college's board of trustees in 1987.

Mr. Copeland is a member and past pastor of the New Hope Baptist Church.

His achievements include the Public Employee of the Year Award from the Harford County Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities, which he received this fall.
