Four members were elected to the Link Board of Trustees last month. Adam Rohdie, joins the board after serving on the Advisory Council for a few years. Mr. Rohdie is currently Headmaster at Greenwich Country Day School in Connecticut. Previously, he served as Head of the Upper School at the Pingry School, in Martinsville, New Jersey. Mr. Rohdie will share his expertise in education with the board and will chair the Education Committee.
Lauran Tuck, co-founder and director of Tuck’s Rush for Literacy Foundation, has also been elected to serve. In addition to managing the foundation, which she and husband Justin Tuck of the NYGiants established in 2008, Lauran recently completed a Master’s Degree in Non-Profit Leadership at the University of Pennsylvania. Her experience in non-profit management and her passion for literacy, will benefit Link greatly.
Also among those elected is Steve Small, CFO of TEAM Schools in Newark, who has spearheaded TEAM’s growth over the past five years and has a great understanding of the changing educational landscape of Newark. Mr. Small brings experience in facilities and financial management, as well as his passion for educational excellence.
Kenneth Petro comes to Link’s board via our partnership with Prudential Financial where he is the director of Information Systems. He has a Master’s Degree from Steven Institute of Technology. His project management and planning skills and his IT knowledge will be valuable assets to Link.
As new members are added, others transition off. But fortunately for Link, those stepping down from the board this year will remain connected, serving on the Advisory Council, so the school will continue to benefit from their involvement and expertise.
The school is very grateful for the extraordinary leadership and service rendered by Wendy Lacey, outgoing chair of the board. Mrs. Lacey has devoted herself to Link for the past nine years, serving as a strong advocate for the school in the community, attracting support and volunteers, guiding the board through a head of school transition and a move to a new facility. Her passion and deep commitment to Link are evident in everything she does.
Link also extends heartfelt thanks to Carey Hamilton ‘71 and Joe Di Cara for their service on the board and willingness to remain engaged at Link and to serve on the council.
Link is grateful to our board and advisory council members – for their generosity of time, talent and gifts.
