    OSWEGO -- Gov. George Pataki recently named Margaret Barclay of Pulaski to the SUNY Oswego College Council.

    Barclay will fill a vacancy created when her husband, Will, successfully ran for the 124th New York State Assembly District. Margaret Barclay brings a background in education and development to the College Council.

    "It's an honor," she said of the appointment. "I'm looking forward to serving the school. I think it's an amazing institution that does great things for the area."

    Her diversity of experiences includes working for Manlius-Pebble Hill School, Vera House, the Milton Academy in Massachusetts, retired State Sen. Roy M. Goodman, and the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. She earned her degree in sociology at St. Lawrence University and has served on many community boards, including WCNY, Preservation and Revitalization of Pulaski, and Arts & Culture for Oswego County.

    For the past few years, Barclay transitioned from the professional world to full-time mother, raising the couple's young children, Harry, 3, and George, 1.

    "Will's family has a long history of involvement at SUNY Oswego," Barclay said. Will Barclay's mother, Dee Dee Barclay, and grandmother, the late Dorothy Barclay, also served on Oswego's College Council.
