LCU Fund for Women's Education Board of Directors Welcomes New Member

The LCU Fund for Women's Education is pleased to announce the appointment of  Valeta Prendergast to the Board of Directors.

Valeta L. Prendergast was born on the sunny island of Jamaica and immigrated to the United States with her parents when she was three years old. Growing up in the Northeast Bronx with her close-knit family and extended families, Valeta learned the value of hard work, dedication and compassion. It’s these life lessons that continue to drive her each day. She received a BA with a double major in English and World History from Hunter College. In 2004 she won the highly competitive Clark Fellowship Award through NYU Wagner while simultaneously obtaining a Master’s degree in Urban Affairs and Planning and working full-time for American Jewish World Service. Her focal point has been nonprofit management which directly correlates with her vast experience wearing many “hats” at start-up nonprofit organizations. In 2013 Valeta was promoted to a senior level position in which her portfolio entails contract management, implementing a travel management system for the entire organization, insurance review and compliance as well as records retention. On her downtime Valeta enjoys spending quality time with her husband and family, volunteering for her favorite charities, traveling, reading mystery novels, watching horror movies and writing poetry.
