The Amazing Generation Written by Murphy, Hesse, Toomey & Lehane Advisory Board Member
Dr. Charles Desmond, advisory board member of Murphy, Hesse, Toomey and Lehane, LLP, recently wrote an article that was published by the New England Journal of Higher Education. The article titled The Amazing Generation is Dr. Desmond’s gratitude to those working in health care and other essential industries.
Over the last four decades, Dr. Desmond has had a long and distinguished career in higher education, non-profits, and other entities. He presently serves as the CEO of Inversant, the largest parent-centered children’s saving account initiative in the Commonwealth. He served for eight years as the chair of the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education and was a higher education policy advisor to former Governor Deval Patrick and to Governor Charlie Baker. In many and varied roles, he has been at the forefront of educational access, retention, and college completion issues for low and moderate-income citizens here in the Commonwealth and across the nation. Dr. Desmond is also a decorated veteran of the U.S. Army, a recipient of both Silver and Bronze stars. It is this military service and his years of commitment to serving others that inform his thoughts below.
On behalf of MHTL we share Dr. Desmond’s sentiments and hope they leave you too with the pride and confidence we feel in the “The Amazing Generation” as we move onward and look to brighter times ahead.
