Melissa has been engaged with New Rochelle schools since her two sons were young. She began volunteering with the Barnard PTA and loved being able to plan events and raise money alongside other parents who cared deeply about being involved in their kids’ school. Melissa became friends with many of these parents as her children grew. Her sons are now in 10th grade at New Rochelle High School (Max) and in 8th grade at Albert Leonard Middle School (Alex). Through friends, Melissa learned about the Fund, whose mission is to support the whole district, and she enjoys continuing to help raise funds that benefit the schools and the community.
“I consider it a privilege to be involved with the Fund because it is an inspiring, wonderful group of people who work tirelessly and give so much of themselves.”
Melissa is Co-Chairing the Journal for the May 10th Gala. She is leading a team of volunteers to increase outreach for the event and our honorees.
