President Drugovich’s Family
When Dr. Margaret Drugovich accepted the presidency of Hartwick College in February 2008, she did so with the full support and enthusiasm of her partner, Elizabeth "Beth" Steele, and their two children, Liz and Billy. The family was warmly welcomed by both the Hartwick and the Oneonta communities, and they quickly made this their home.
Before coming to Hartwick, the family lived in central Ohio for 10 years, where Margaret was a vice president at Ohio Wesleyan University. Beth was the Communications Director for The Wellington School, an independent school in Columbus (and the school that both children attended).
