At its annual fall meeting, Acadia University’s governing board elected Henry Demone (’76) as Chair. Formerly Board Secretary, Demone joined Acadia’s Board in October 2012 and succeeds John Rogers (’79) who began his term as Board Chair in October 2016.
“Your alma mater has a big impact on your life – what you learn, the people you meet, how you grow in those years. Universities like Acadia are an important part of people’s formative years. I am pleased to take on this new role because it is crucial for Acadia to remain strong and healthy for future generations,” says Demone, who specializes in helping organizations thrive.
