The MYB $$eed Tank Competition announced contest winners at a press conference held at the Mount Vernon Extension Center. Student Zionia Francis won $3,000 to support her business, Indie Inc., through which she sells unique handbags via internet marketing.

The competition was launched to seed economic growth through supporting entrepreneurship. The partnership of the Mount Vernon, Yonkers, and the Bronx Chambers of Commerce with Westchester Community College was created when local entrepreneur/Angel funder Derickson Lawrence, approached WCC about his desire to bring attention to and build on the business resources available in historically underserved communities.

John Nonna named Chair of Board of Trustees

Jan.10, 2016

John Nonna has been named the chair of the Westchester Community College Board of Trustees. The Board appointed Nonna to this position with a unanimous vote at its meeting held earlier today. He has been a member of the Board since 2013. David Swope, who was named to the Board in 2011 and was appointed chair in 2013, will remain a member of the Board.

“I would like to thank Mr. Swope for his vision and for providing direction at the college during his tenure as chair,” says Dr. Belinda S. Miles, President, Westchester Community College. “I have worked together with Mr. Swope and the Board on leading the college to its new status as an Achieving the Dream member institution focused on increased levels of student success. We have also expanded K-12 partnerships in order to increase college readiness and achieved a successful reaccreditation through the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. I am looking forward to working with the new chair and the entire Board on our extensive, transformative goals for the institution.”

Nonna, a former member of the Westchester County Board of Legislators, is a practicing lawyer and managing partner of the New York office of Patton Boggs, a leading national law firm in the areas of public policy, litigation and business law. He has balanced a successful law practice with public service, including various roles in Pleasantville, New York, including mayor. In that position, he led the effort to bring affordable housing to seniors through a public private partnership, facilitated the establishment of the Jacob Burns Film Center, and fostered the revitalization of the Pleasantville business district.

He was the chair of the Board of Legislators Legislation Committee, shepherding in the passage of term limits, ethics reform, flood control law and the creation of the charter revision commission through the legislature.

In rotating out of the chair position, Swope looks back at several years of accomplishments. In particular, he helped lead the national search which resulted in the hiring of the third president in the college’s history. Dr. Miles, the first female and first African-American leader in the history of the institution, was named president in January 2015. Together with the Board and the college community, she has instituted new initiatives in support of student success.

Swope, a lifetime resident of Westchester, is the founder of Club Fit in Jefferson Valley and Briarcliff and is active in many community organizations.

In 1963, his family founded Teatown Lake Reservation with a gift of 190 acres to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Today, Teatown is the largest non-governmental preservation in the county with approximately 900 acres adjacent to Westchester County’s Shadow Lake Park, John Hand Park and Kitchawan Preserve. David is past Chairman and an honorary board member of Teatown.
