"I am honored to begin my term as the chair of the Board of Trustees during the 35th year anniversary celebration of my Sewickley Academy Class.

When my family returned to Pittsburgh in 1979, I recall sitting in Jim Cavalier’s office with my parents. His thoughtful, good guidance helped us decide that I would benefit from a Sewickley Academy education, and my grandparents joined my parents to help make my Sewickley Academy education possible.

That began our family’s involvement with the Academy. Today, my husband, Paul, and I are grateful and proud that our daughter has had the advantages of a Sewickley Academy education since we held her hands and walked into the Early Childhood building. I can hardly believe she begins her junior year this fall.

The role of Board Chair is a responsibility and an honor. With the other members of the Board of Trustees, I look forward to working with our Sewickley Academy community. We recognize your commitment to positive participation and generosity that are vitally important to the continuing good health and growth of our school. All of which makes our shared goal possible—giving our students the finest preparation and guidance for their futures."
