CHAMBER MATTERS 2022
Rooster Booster to feature Wesleyan Alumna Lydia Dorman The Chamber will host its Rooster Booster breakfast this Thursday, November 3 at 7:30 a.m. at the Owensboro Convention Center (501 West Second Street). The program is sponsored by Kentucky Wesleyan College and will feature speaker Lydia Dorman, former Senior Vice President of Human Resources for The Coca-Cola (Japan) Company in Tokyo and graduate of Kentucky Wesleyan College.
Lydia Dorman ’82 is a Washington, D.C. native who found herself in the Bluegrass State after researching colleges with broadcasting curriculums and what she recalls as a serendipitous chance encounter with a Kentucky Wesleyan admissions counselor that led to a campus visit. She was eventually awarded a prestigious Brown Scholarship and chose Wesleyan over two large universities because of the personalized admissions process and the feel of the small but mighty supportive community around her. As a student at KWC, Dorman majored in telecommunications, minored in business and was an active member of Kappa Delta sorority. She went on to earn her master’s degree in corporate communication with an emphasis in training and development from Western Kentucky University. Recently retired after a 35-plusyear career that spanned several continents, Dorman now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dorman’s professional career included stints with The Walt Disney Company in Orlando, Florida, Toyota Motors Manufacturing in Georgetown, Kentucky and eventually her role as Senior Vice President of Human Resources for The Coca-Cola Company in Japan. In total she spent over 23 years with The Coca-Cola Company delivering HR strategy and people programs in established and emerging markets throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Dorman was inducted into the Kentucky Wesleyan College Alumni

Dorman continues to be active in her community, giving back through involvement with numerous charitable organizations. She has shown tremendous support as an alumna of KWC by serving on the Kentucky Wesleyan College Board of Trustees, the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors and the Diversity and Inclusion Task Force.
