The Board of Trustees elected four new Trustee members at its Annual Meeting in June 2022, and we would like to extend a warm welcome to Chris Berger, Ann Calder, Nate Cressman and Charity Grace Mofsen. Each of these talented individuals brings a unique strength and new energy to the Board and we look forward to working more closely with each of them in the years ahead.
Sadly, we bid farewell to three exceptional Trustees whose terms expired in 2022: Katie Brownell, Patrick Hehir and Jane Tyler. Their collective wisdom and active participation will be sorely missed. In recognition of her outstanding service to the Atheneum over sixteen years, the Board voted unanimously to name Jane Tyler a Trustee Emeritus. We remain forever indebted to Jane for her zealous leadership of the Dance Festival and her guidance as a long-standing member of the Board’s Executive Committee.
I’d like to thank each of the Trustees for their tireless support of the Atheneum during 2022. Their constructive input and willingness to dedicate a significant amount of time to our housing dilemma, coupled with their generosity in terms of financial support and stewardship for our public library is greatly appreciated.
I’d also like to thank Ann Scott, our Executive Director, for shepherding the Atheneum through the island’s unique challenges while embracing the creativity and change necessary to maintain the vibrancy of our special institution.
Lastly, and on behalf of the Board of Trustees, please accept our sincere thanks to you, our donors, supporters and advocates. We feel honored to serve such a remarkable population and it is your enthusiasm and support of what we do that drives our mission forward.
