Louisville Collegiate School is led by its Board of Trustees, composed of Collegiate parents, alumni, and grandparents who give generously of their time and talents in service to the school. The Board works in concert with Collegiate’s administrative team on issues of long-term importance to the school including finance, advancement, buildings and grounds, and strategic planning.
The 2019-20 school year will be remembered as a year unlike any other, and the entire Collegiate community owes gratitude to Board President Jennifer Kramer, for her leadership and grace under fire. Jennifer completes a two-year term as president as her daughter Layne graduates from Collegiate. In her seven years as a trustee, Jennifer has co-chaired Collegiate’s Centennial event “The 100,” chaired Annual Fund, and, as President, lead the final year of the Second Century Campaign, the hiring and introduction of Dr. Macrae, and the school’s transitions through the early part of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As we begin the 2020-21 school year, we are excited to welcome new officers and two new trustees:
Board President Frank Hill is the parent of Tate ’24 and Tori ’24. Frank is a financial analyst/planner for Meritrust Wealth Management and has served on the Board since 2016 and in the role of Vice President since 2018.
Vice President Augusta Brown Holland ‘94 is the parent of Cora ’25, Lilla ’28, and Owsley ’28. Augusta has a background in urban planning and community leadership and owns several local businesses. While joining Collegiate’s Board in 2016, Augusta served on Collegiate’s Design Committee, Second Century Campaign Committee, and chaired the search committee for our new Head of School.
Treasurer Brian Fitzgerald is the parent of Molly ’20, Tommy ’21, and Charlie ’24. He is the Treasurer for the Brown-Forman Corporation and this will be his third year on Collegiate’s Board. Brian has been serving on the Finance Committee for the past two years.
Campbell Brown joins the Board as the parent of Maddie ’24 and Chandler ’27. He is the current President and Managing Director of Old Forester at Brown-Forman Corporation. Campbell brings extensive experience in the global marketplace for various spirits brands. His perspective is also informed by his volunteer experience on the Board of Trustees for Rollins College and the Board of Directors for Republic Bank.
Michael Rust joins the Board as the grandparent of Cora (4), Jude (4), and Tysen ’18. He served on Collegiate’s Advancement committee after retiring after 12 years as the President of the Kentucky Hospital Association and brings to the Board a variety of perspectives from his professional and volunteer work in a variety of organizations in healthcare, education, and philanthropy. He was recently named the University of Louisville Executive in Residence and is now serving on the Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) Board of Trustees as well as the Glenville State College Board of Governors.
We wish to thank the following trustees who are departing the Board.
Kelly Adams completes her Board term as her son Trey graduates in the class of 2020. In addition to her Board service, Kelly has dedicated time at Collegiate as a basketball coach and will continue to be a presence on campus as a parent of Parker ’22.
Kathy Barrens leaves the Board after nine years as her daughter Sara ’20 heads to college. Kathy ably served the Board as Treasurer for six years and will be honored as the Collegiate Service Award winner at the Alumni Awards this year.
