Officers Will Lead Board in Fundraising Efforts in Support of the College; Four Members have Terms Renewed

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. -- The SUNY Orange Foundation Board of Directors recently installed its 2016 slate of officers and approved the renewal of three-year terms for four board members.

Retired Orange County Trust President and CEO Terry Saturno is now the new chair of the Board, with Derrik Wynkoop (chair-elect), Frank Peverly (secretary/treasurer) and John Rath (vice chair), and Rich Rowley (immediate past chair) rounding out the slate of officers. Also, former Foundation Chair Nick Illobre was appointed to the Executive Committee as officer-at-large. Meanwhile, Peverly, Illobre, Rowley and Brenda Harburger were affirmed to serve three more years on the Board.

“All of us on the Executive Committee are excited to be on a team led by Terry Saturno,” says Nick Illobre, who chairs the Foundation’s Board Development Committee. “Terry’s skills both as a successful corporate and non-profit organization leader, plus the fact that she is an alumna of the College, position her as the perfect individual to take the legacy of Rich Rowley’s tenure to a new level.

“She is ready to write the next chapter in the history of a dynamic and engaged board,” Illobre adds. “This slate is an example of the excellent succession planning that Rich put in place as part of his long-term strategy. We have strong leaders in place who will lead the Foundation forward for the coming decade and beyond.”

The mission of the SUNY Orange Foundation is to generate funds and build resources to enhance learning opportunities for students and the community. During the 2015-16 academic year, the Foundation expects to award more than $320,000 in scholarships to help deserving SUNY Orange students.
