Steven D. Levinsky and Julie G. Skattum Begin Leadership Roles on Allegheny College Board of Trustees
Allegheny College, one of the nation’s oldest and most innovative four-year colleges where multidisciplinary learning breaks the conventional mold, announced today that Steven D. Levinsky and Julie G. Skattum officially began their roles as chair and vice chair, respectively, of the College’s Board of Trustees. Mary “Missy” Feeley has completed her three-year term as chair.
All three are alumni of the College: Levinsky graduated from Allegheny in 1978, Skattum in 1985, and Feeley in 1978.
Levinsky, of Natick, Massachusetts, is a partner with management consulting firm Wellesley Partners and previously was senior vice president of human resources with Fidelity Investments. A political science major at Allegheny, he joined the College’s Board of Trustees in 2011 and previously served as its vice chair. Levinsky lectures internationally and has served on a number of corporate boards. He is also an active civic volunteer, including roles as chair of the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce and as a town personnel board member and elected town meeting member in Natick. In addition, he creates glass sculptures at his studio in Natick and has chaired the board of directors for the Center for Arts. He is married to Denise Girardin.
Skattum, of London, England, earned her Allegheny degree in political science, writing, and women’s studies. Skattum joined the College’s Board of Trustees in 2017. She received her law degree from The Ohio State University and practiced as an attorney with the Kelley Drye and Warren international law firm in New York City. Skattum also served for 11 years on the board of the American School in London, an international, private, independent K–12 school serving approximately 1,400 students. She is married to alumnus and former Allegheny board member Dag Skattum.
“The Allegheny College community is grateful to Missy Feeley for her dedicated service as chair of the Board of Trustees during the past three years, in particular as we have successfully navigated the COVID-19 pandemic,” Allegheny President Hilary L. Link said. “Steve Levinsky and Julie Skattum have distinguished themselves as loyal Alleghenians and insightful leaders. They are interdisciplinary thinkers who will continue to build on the College’s tradition of excellence as we work toward an even brighter future.”
The Allegheny College Board of Trustees is the governing body elected to oversee the College. The board’s primary responsibilities relate to policy-making and responsibility for sound resource management of the College.
