Cedarville, Ohio-Cedarville University has named Karyn Brookes as its newest trustee. Brookes will serve a three-year term. Dr. Bill Brown, president of Cedarville University, stated, "Karyn brings a wealth of experience to the board of trustees. As a wife, mother, and teacher, she is able to provide a great perspective for the board. Her involvement in a number of national ministries allows her to see the University in a broad context. And, of course, the fact that she is a Cedarville alumna and serves as an officer on the Alumni Council shows the depth of her commitment to her alma mater." After receiving her elementary education degree from Cedarville University in 1995, Brookes taught third and fourth grades in New York, North Carolina, and Washington. She is currently a substitute teacher in Annapolis, Md., where she and her husband, Dan, are involved with Officers` Christian Fellowship, The Navigators, and a home Bible study group. -30-
