The Brookdale Board of Trustees selected its executive leadership team and set priorities for the coming school year on Nov. 14 during its annual Reorganization Meeting, held in the Student Life Center on the Lincroft campus.
Trustee Carl Guzzo Jr. was selected by his colleagues to serve a fourth consecutive one-year term as board chair. A practicing attorney and health policy expert living in Spring Lake, Guzzo has served on the board since 2012.
“I want to say thank you to all of the trustees, to our new interim president, and to the staff,” said Guzzo. “I’m looking forward to a good year. We have big challenges ahead, and we are going to work together as a team to get them solved. I think we are moving in the right direction.”
Trustee Tracey Abby-White was elected by the board to serve a one-year term as vice chair, a position she previously held from 2015 to 2016. A former teacher, board of education member and Atlantic Highlands councilwoman, Abby-White currently serves as director of global sales and channel enablement for Tenable.
“I’m very excited to once again serve as a member of the leadership team,” she said. “One of my main priorities for this year will be to explore alternative sources of revenue, in an effort to keep tuition costs down while continuing to provide the high quality of education and the high level of service that our students deserve.”
Board members also affirmed the college’s strategic priorities for the 2017-18 school year and began formulating subcommittees that will focus on areas such as curriculum, facilities, finances and board policy.
