Marlboro said a fond farewell to two trustees at the end of the last academic year. Peter Galbraith had served on the board since 2008, bringing valuable perspective to the position as the former Ambassador to Croatia, and Vermont state senator. During his tenure on the board, he and his brothers, James and Alan, named a room in the Rice Aron Library in honor of their parents, John Kenneth and Catherine Atwater Galbraith, and donated the family’s personal library.
"Peter brought to the board his deep knowledge of Vermont as well as his broad international experience,” said Ellen McCulloch-Lovell, Marlboro president. “As a former faculty member at Windham College, he also understood and appreciated small, liberal arts colleges, providing valuable insight and support."
Stephan Morse joined Marlboro in 2009, after many years of association with the college as the president and CEO of Windham Foundation, which promotes the vitality of Vermont’s rural communities through philanthropy and education. Stephan is a native Vermonter, and also a former legislator from Windham County, whose extensive knowledge of Vermont and network of leaders were valuable assets to the board.
“Stephan contributed an acute sense of board process, financial oversight, and skills in capital projects, qualities he had practiced at Windham Foundation for 25 years,” said Ellen. “The board benefited from his nonprofit, political, and fiscal expertise, as well as his consistent, good sense of humor."
