Alumni-Elected Trustees Announced

Like a lot of other semi-important things, the vote for Cornell's alumni-elected trustees completely slipped me by. But it appears that Kelly Brown '88 and Philip Reilly '69 were elected to Cornell's 64 member governing council.

Both bring new ideas and enthusiasm to East Hill: Brown works at Proctor and Gamble and is interested in leveraging Cornell's academic assets into economic value through an increased focus on entrepreneurship and innovative revenue streams. Reilly on the other hand, is the CEO of a genetics company and former NH researcher. He is obviously going to bring commitment to the University's life sciences initiative, but he is also calling for the creation of a nationwide 'Cornell Ambassador Corps' that would aim to increase the University's diversity by advertising the opportunities found at Cornell to minority students and low-income urban inner city and rural students.

Coincidentally, both Brown and Reilly have connections to two of Cornell's more prominent and generous student societies.
