EASTON — The Mu­seum re­cently wel­comed the fol­low­ing new board mem­bers: Daniel Can­zoniero of Easton, Craig L. Fuller of Easton, Jef­frey Hu­velle of Royal Oak and Wash­ing­ton, D.C., and Nanny Trippe of Easton to its board of trustees. In ad­di­tion, out­go­ing board chair­man Car­olyn Wil­liams of Easton (2010– 17) and board mem­ber Nancy Ap­pleby (2011–17) of Boz­man were hon­ored for their con­tri­bu­tions to the mu­seum’s board.

“Car­olyn ded­i­cated her heart and soul to the mu­seum, and steered it with wis­dom, courage, and for­ti­tude through a time of tran­si­tion and re­vi­tal­iza­tion. She has be­come a friend and an in­spi­ra­tion to me, as she has to so many. We also sa­lute and thank out­go­ing Sec­re­tary Nancy Ap­pleby, who formed a key part of the lead­er­ship dur­ing the same pe­riod. Car­olyn and Nancy will be dearly missed, but of course re­main beloved mem­bers of the mu­seum fam­ily,” Ben Si­mons, mu­seum di­rec­tor said.

Cathy McCoy was elected chair­man of the mu­seum’s board of trustees, re­plac­ing Wil­liams. McCoy, a re­tired cor­po­rate and se­cu­ri­ties lawyer, en­joyed an over 25-year le­gal ca­reer in the cor­po­rate and se­cu­ri­ties law field, the first half on the staff of the U.S. Se­cu­ri­ties and Ex­change Com­mis­sion and the lat­ter half as a part­ner in the law firm Arnold & Porter.

“We wel­come Cathy as chair of the board of trustees. As we look ahead to an ex­cit­ing year cel­e­brat­ing the mu­seum’s 60th an­niver­sary, the lead­er­ship and fu­ture of the mu­seum could hardly be more se­cure. I’m also de­lighted to wel­come our new board mem­bers. Each brings deep ex­pe­ri­ence and pas­sion for the mu­seum’s

mis­sion and com­mit­ment to help­ing us reach our goals in the com­ing years,” Si­mons said.
