Shrewsbury resident Latonya Brennan was sworn in as the newest member of the Brookdale Community College Board of Trustees during the board’s monthly public meeting in Lincroft on Dec. 20.
An insurance and risk management professional specializing in education, Brennan has previously worked with the New Jersey School Boards Association and the New Jersey Schools Insurance Group. She is also a past president of the Associate Business Members of the New Jersey Association of School Business Officials.
Brennan currently serves as area vice president for Arthur J. Gallagher and Co. Risk Management Services in Princeton. She is among a select group of insurance professionals to hold a Certified School Risk Management designation.
Following a public swearing-in ceremony during the trustees’ meeting, Brennan said she is excited to bring her knowledge and experience to the Brookdale board.
“I have a strong background working with public entities and boards of education, and I hope to use my experience to benefit the Brookdale Board of Trustees in any way I can,” said Brennan. “This board accomplishes a lot of great things for local students and community members, and together I think we can accomplish even more in the months and years ahead. I am delighted to be here.”
Brennan was appointed to a five-year term on the board by Gov. Chris Christie.
Board chair Carl Guzzo Jr. joined Brookdale President Dr. Maureen Murphy in welcoming Brennan to the board and expressing high hopes for Brookdale’s newest trustee.
“Trustee Brennan will be a wonderful addition to our board, and I think we are all looking forward to productive and successful new year,” Guzzo said.
