The Winston Prouty Center recently welcomed two new board members: Elizabeth (Liz) Harrison and Chris Campany. Ann Albee was named board president in June of this year.
Liz Harrison is a board-certified clinical nutritionist who runs a private practice in Brattleboro. She is also a commissioner for Brattleboro Housing Partnership and a member of Brattleboro Rotary Club. “Children and their families are our future.” Harrison said. “The Prouty Center does such a great job, so it was important to me to contribute.”
Chris Campany is the executive director of the Windham Regional Commision (WRC). Chris was a member of the Winston Prouty Campus Task Force that investigated the sustainability of the campus in 2019. “Chris’s viewpoint from the WRC was extremely valuable as we took a critical look at how our campus can be an asset to the broader community now and in the future,” said Winston Prouty Executive Director Chloe Learey.
Ann Allbee has been a member of the Winston Prouty Center’s Board of Trustees since 2017 and was appointed president at the annual meeting this year. “As a former schoolteacher and involved community member, Ann has done a fantastic job of voicing the needs of our community so we can be a responsive organization in our area. We’re grateful for her commitment and look forward to her leadership in the years ahead,” said Learey.
Other members of the Board of Trustees are Jenna Bagnall-Reilly (vice president and treasurer), Frederic Noyes (immediate past president), Anna Piergentili (secretary), Charlotte Traas, Kate Trzaskos, and Cindy Twombly.
The Winston Prouty Center for Child and Family Development was founded in 1969 and provides inclusive education and family support to promote the success of children and families.
