PDG Sigrid Solomom
Sigrid Solomon was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY until she was fortunate enough to attend
boarding school at the age of 15. She holds a BS in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell
University and her M.Ed. from East Carolina University and currently wrapping up her Doctorate with
Ashland University. Sigrid has been working in higher education since 1993 at various colleges and
universities; North Carolina State University, North Carolina Wesleyan University, Emory and Henry
College, Southern Vermont College and now at Wilmington College where she has served as the Vice
President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students/ Title IX Coordinator over the past fifteen years.
In her professional capacity, she has had the opportunity to have a long-lasting impact on the
community and county. Quite a few of Wilmington College’s students come from Wilmington and
Clinton County. Sigrid takes a personal interest in all students and makes it her mission to get to know
as many of them as possible. Not only that, Sigrid helps students from outside the county feel welcome
and at home. She has been known to take in students who do not live close enough to go home for
short holiday breaks. She has also invited students into her home for a home cooked meal and some
“down home, old fashioned lovin’”.
In her role as Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students/Title IX Coordinator, Sigrid
has to set the example for her colleagues, employees and students on campus. The same is true with
Rotary International as she has presented workshops on DEI at the local, district, and zone levels in
addition this year serving as a training leader for International Assembly. Sigrid also served for many
years on the All Ohio PETS steering committee, co-chair for the programs for the Zone 30/31
Conference, as well as many other zone and district initiatives. While in 2019-2020 she served as District
Governor, formerly District Governor Elect, District Trainer and past Assistant District Governor of
Rotary District 6670, through these positions she also represents the Wilmington PM Rotary Club. She
was the president of the Wilmington PM Rotary Club (formerly an AM Club) from 2011 through 2012.
Through her affiliation with the Rotary Club she directs, plans and participates in such community
services as the Cardboard City endeavor to raise monies for the Clinton County Homeless Shelter, the
Four Way Speech Contest, Vocational Scholarship and the Banana Split Festival.
She was a board member for the Clinton County Leadership Institute. Through her affiliation
with this group she participates in a variety of activities like Dinner in the Fields. Leadership Clinton
provides leadership training and education for future Clinton County Leaders. She also co-chaired Dinner
in the Fields in the past when it was on the farm at Wilmington College. Sigrid has coordinated the
Leadership Clinton class activities and assignments for future leaders. Sigrid was also the President of
the Clinton County Free Clinic Board. There she coordinated services for residents of Clinton County who
are without health insurance and/or adequate health care.
Sigrid is an active member of Cornerstone Baptist Church. She is known as the voice of
Cornerstone not only for her wonderful speaking voice, but she greets their guests and acknowledges
them and generally promotes Cornerstone Baptist in her unique, pleasant, and friendly way. She is a
people person and never meets a stranger. A testament of these accomplishments was recognized in
2016 as she was awarded one of the Outstanding Women of Clinton County. When you think of her,
involvement and involving others comes to mind.
She has two sons 33 and 24-year-old and a host of former foster children. Family and friends
are extremely important to her.
