The Ithaca College Board of Trustees welcomed six new trustees in 2018. In May, Luvelle Brown, superintendent of the Ithaca City School District, was elected as a four-year term trustee, and Ellen Staurowsky, MS ’78, an expert in higher education and intercollegiate athletics, was elected as alumni trustee to serve a three-year term. Yetunde Smalls ’21, a politics major and Martin Luther King scholar from Michigan, was elected as student trustee and will serve a two-year term.
In August, Rosanna Aybar, vice president of finance and administration and assistant treasurer of the William T. Grant Foundation; David Meberg ’85, a School of Business alumnus who is principal, president and CEO of Consolidated Carpet; and Orinthia Montague, president of Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3), were elected to serve four-year terms on the Board of Trustees.
