Catholic Education Arizona, Arizona's largest Catholic School Tuition Organization, welcomes three new members to its board of directors.
The new board members are Kelley Tucker, CFO of Baker Brothers; Bryan Brady, retired CFO Fortune 150 (International); and Erin Monnin, development officer of St. Vincent de Paul.
"We are excited about our new board members, this is a gifted group with new ideas, and energy who will blend effortlessly with our current board members," said Catholic Education Arizona's President and CEO Nancy Padberg, MBA.
Monnin has authored the book "Catholic Leadership for Civil Society," alongside Cristofer Pereyra, and is a former Fellowship of Catholic University Students missionary, a Tepeyac Leadership Initiative graduate, a Bible study leader, and co-host of the "Catholic Leadership for Civil Society" podcast.
Brady retired as a corporate vice president of a Fortune 150 company. He was a faculty member and coach for the MBA program at Arizona State University for six years. During this time, he completed five years on the Board of Catholic Community Foundation, resulting in the Needs Based Scholarship Program. Just months ago, he accepted a position on the Diocesan School Board.
Tucker is an Arizona Catholic school alumnus. She attended St. Vincent de Paul grade school and Bourgade Catholic High School. She has bachelor's degrees in finance and communications from WP Carey School of Business at ASU and works as CFO and director of administration at Baker Bros Flooring. Kelley previously served as Board Chairwoman on the Board of Directors at Bourgade Catholic High School.
"We are truly blessed to have three new Board members with a wealth of experience in Catholic Education, and all from completely different settings and scope. It truly amplifies their passion and commitment to the children of the Diocese," said Board Chairman Todd Bankofier.
