Watley has been active on the board since joining in October 2009, including service as the committee chair for the third annual Five Star Gala in 2012, which raised the most money of any event in the Foundation’s history.
Watley will succeed Tom Brusnahan, who has served as chairman since 2011 and will remain on the board as past chairman.
Watley’s two-year term as chairman begins July 1.
At the same meeting, long-serving Foundation board members Carl DiCapo and Bill Dunn Jr. were honored with director emeritus status. The prestigious status, which affords the honor of lifetime service on the Foundation board, is given for distinguished, meritorious service to MCC and to the Foundation.
Dunn has served on the board since 2001 and DiCapo, an MCC alumnus, has served since 2005.
