Stillman College has named three new members to their board of trustees. Among those is Business Council of Alabama President and CEO Katie Boyd Britt, who will serve a three-year term. Britt is a native of Enterprise, Alabama, and currently resides in Montgomery.
“The mission of Stillman College to foster excellence, provide opportunities to all, and prepare others for leadership and service is not only in direct alignment to that of the Business Council of Alabama but also to my own core values,” Britt said. “I am honored for the opportunity to come alongside the leadership of Stillman and serve the students, faculty in this role.”
The other newly elected members are Terry Saban, CEO and co-founder of Nick’s Kids Foundation and wife of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban, and James D. Anderson, longtime educator and administrator in the University of Illinois College of Education.
“I look forward to working with and learning from these three respected professionals,” said Stillman College President Cynthia Warrick. “Their commitment to and passion for fostering academic excellence; to providing opportunities for diverse populations; and to unwavering community engagement are well known. I have admired Anderson, Britt, and Saban by reputation for many years. Their appointment broadens the Stillman intellectual base and demonstrates the board’s commitment to the College’s core values.”
