    This is a photograph of Richard B. Flynn, Springfield College’s twelfth president, in the process of performing his famous hook shot. In 2005, Flynn was elected to the Division III Presidents Council of the NCAA, and it is possible that this photograph was taken during an induction event. The NCAA Division III Presidents Council directs policies of D-III and establishes its strategic plan. It also approves regulations for championships, the use of funds, and makes budgetary recommendations to the Executive Committee. While serving at the college from 1999 to 2013, Flynn expanded enrollment, developed new doctoral programs, led the most successful fundraising campaign in the college’s history, and grew student activities. He also improved the school’s financial standing, enhanced community relations, and revitalized the school’s relationship with its long-standing partner, the YMCA. Under his leadership, the college opened six new facilities and renovated thirteen existing facilities. Many of the new facilities and renovations have won national awards for design excellence. less
