Today is Dr. Sharon B. DeVivo's first official day of service on CAP's Board of Governors.
DeVivo is the president and CEO of Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology and is well-known and -connected within the nation's aviation academic/university community.
She was most recently recognized for her transformative leadership at Vaughn College, founded in 1932 and located in New York City near LaGuardia Airport. Under her direction, the college now offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in aviation, engineering, management and technology to a diverse student body of about 1,550 students, of whom about 80% are members of minority groups.
“It is an honor to join this phenomenal organization,” DeVivo said. “CAP’s commitment to serving the next generation of aviation and aerospace leaders, especially those from underserved groups, is what attracted me to this role of service. I look forward to supporting the board, the staff and the volunteers in their critical work.”
