The Pace Academy Board of Trustees recently welcomed new members Bruce Carroll and Natasha Swann, both of whom have children at the school.
Swann is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and went on to earn her MBA at the university’s Wharton School of Business. She has been an active Pace parent volunteer, serving as a Lower School division co-chair during the school’s recent $32-million Aim High campaign. Swann has been a member of the Pace Parents Club Auction Committee and a grade representative. She also is a 2013-14 Annual Fund volunteer.
“We chose Pace for its academic rigor, small size and strong sense of community,” Swann says. “I am honored to serve on the Board of Trustees. Pace is a special place for our family, and I am looking forward to helping the school in any way I can.”
Carroll, a graduate of Louisiana State University and Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business, brings to the Pace Board more than 20 years of telecommunications experience, particularly in the areas of finance, marketing and project management. He currently serves as senior product manager for ARRIS.
Carroll and his family are actively involved with several local organizations that support educational, medical and community needs, and he has volunteered as a den leader and cub master for the Pace Academy Cub Scout Pack 4 for five years. The Carrolls also have been energetic Lower School parent volunteers, Parents Club sponsors and Booster Club members.
“I consider it an honor and a privilege to be selected to serve Pace in this role,” Carroll says. “I hope to contribute to Pace’s success.”
