FREDERICK, Md.—Two business professionals and an alumna of Hood College's graduate school have been elected to the College's Board of Associates.
The new members are Allan Kleban of Wilton, Conn., vice president of business development for KBE Building Corporation; Matthew C. McGreevy of Frederick, vice president and financial adviser at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management; and Ann Wiegand of Harpers Ferry, W.Va., a research biologist at the National Cancer Center and a 2004 graduate of the College's biomedical science graduate degree program.
The board of associates, organized in 1954, meets twice a year and serves in an advisory capacity to the president and to the Hood College Board of Trustees, the governing body of the college. Alumni, parents and friends of Hood from throughout the region comprise the board of associates, whose members support the college financially and share their time, talent and experience to benefit Hood, its students and the greater Frederick community.
Members support a wide range of fund-raising programs at Hood. In the past 10 years, members have contributed more than $5.7 million to Hood in support of student scholarships, academics and athletics. Board members have also raised funds to support professional development grants for faculty and staff, awarding more than $680,000 through the McCardell Professional Development Grants program that was established by the board in 1980. The board has raised more than $120,000 to establish an endowed fund for student scholarships and has recently established a new scholarship focusing on leadership skills.
