The board of directors of the Geneva History Center appointed Glorianne Campbell and Mary Rogers for service to the board as of Jan. 1, 2013.

Campbell is a 1959 graduate of Geneva Community High School and has served on many boards and committees including the Exhibition and Education Committee of the Geneva History Center, Preservation Partners of the Fox Valley and Historic Homes Association. Campbell previously served as vice president of the Riverhead Central School District Board of Education in New York.

"I am honored to serve G.H.C.," said Campbell. "Having grown up in Geneva and coming home many times a year even when I didn't live here, I have always had a special feeling for this place. With our retirement and return to Geneva, I have greatly enjoyed getting involved in the community and organizations that work to retain our local history, buildings and promote the value of our history and this gem of a community."

Rogers is a graduate of Boston College and the University of Illinois College of Law. She is a practicing attorney for more than 20 years and most recently joined the law office of Seraphin & Seraphin in St. Charles. Although she did not grow up in Geneva, as the wife of Geneva native and Geneva High School Principal Tom Rogers, she has been very involved in the community.

"Tom's pride runs deep and is very contagious. We have raised our three children here and we are all very proud to call Geneva our home. I am excited about the opportunity to be a part of the G.H.C. board," Mary said.

The board of directors is responsible for the establishment of policies by which the organization is governed. The term of office is three years and a member can serve a maximum of three full terms. The board is led by president, John Bassett; first vice president, Mike Simon; second vice president, Patti Rambo; treasurer, Bob Swanson; and secretary, Lynda Johnson. Board meetings are held every other month.
