New Leadership for the John Dewey Circle and Network

Christina R. Davis is the 1999-2000 Chair of the John Dewey Circle, which was established in 1995 to honor donors whose generosity provides significant support for the mission of Teachers College.

Davis graduated from TC in 1968 with an M.A. in Curriculum and Teaching and is an active member of the Alumni Council. In addition to her commitment to TC, Davis is also involved with a number of distinguished groups such as the UN High Commission on Refugees and the Education Committee of the Museum of Modern Art.

The TC Fund is fortunate to have Davis heading the transitioned efforts of the current Dewey Network, which serves as an advisory board to the TC Fund.

Participants in the Dewey Network encourage membership in the John Dewey Circle by cultivating relationships with alumni and friends of TC to increase leadership support, providing advice, sharing new ideas for solicitation, and reviewing new projects that are designed to reach alumni in dynamic and innovative ways.

This year, the Dewey Network would like to thank Pat Nicholson, who served as the Chair from 1997 to 1999. Nicholson has been an important part of the achievements of the Dewey Network and she will continue to work closely with the TC Fund as the National TC Fund Chair.

We rely on the determination and imagination of our distinguished Network, whose members include:

Dr. Thea Benenson

Dr. Miriam Cilo

Mrs. Christina Davis

Mrs. Edith B. Everett

Dr. Gloria Farber

Dr. Elaine Foster

Mrs. Ruth Friendly

Mrs. Ann Hadley

Ms. Laura Kornfeld

Dr. Shirley Lau Mow

Ms. Pat Nicholson

Mr. H. Marshall Schwarz

Dr. Cynthia Sculco
