Board of Directors

The Lock Haven Alumni Association's Board of Directors consists of 20 alumni from the 1970s to the 2020s and every decade in between. Presided by John Newcomer ’84 and vice president George Way '78, the Board is divided into three committees: Legacy, Engagement, Relationship/Campus. Each committee has a chair representative that works closely with Alumni Office staff to assist in fundraising, marketing, relationship-building and event planning initiatives that support the Lock Haven Alumni Office's mission. All board members are volunteers who have been elected into their roles in large part for their unwavering loyalty and commitment to preserving the past while ensuring the future of Commonwealth University - Lock Haven.
