The Ohio University Foundation Board of Trustees welcomes four new trustees to the Bobcat family this fall.

Mathematics alum David “Dave” P. Levy joins, along with Casey A. Christopher, Dr. Daryl R. Sybert, and R. Scott Durcanin. They were elected to the board during the June 2016 Foundation Board meeting. The first official board meeting for the new trustees was Nov. 3.

“We are delighted to welcome the newly-elected Foundation Board Trustees. The leadership that our trustees provide is critical to the operations of the Foundation and furthering OHIO’s mission,” said J. Bryan Benchoff, president and CEO of The Ohio University Foundation and vice president of University Advancement. “We are always looking for new and talented people who represent a broad cross-selection of colleges, geographic locations, and graduation decades, and who will bring their expertise, talents and skill sets to the table to help us do all that we do.”
