Trustee Lily McNair, PhD. Leaves More Than a Mark on ICS


At ICS, our classrooms have always featured an accent wall painted to showcase the school colors of ICS teacher’s alma maters. Aside from adding fun pops of color into the learning environment, it serves as another reminder of our network-wide college prep focus, too.

This is why on Tuesday, June 12th, we were honored to have former Board of Trustees member Lily D. McNair, PhD. paint the accent wall of a New Ventures classroom a beautiful crimson in honor of her new journey as the 8th President of Tuskegee University.

After serving as a valued member of ICS’ Board of Trustees for many years, Dr. Lily D. McNair will become Tuskegee University’s eighth president, and first female president.

Having previously served as Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs at Wagner College in New York City, we are sad to see Lily go, and are forever indebted to her for her unwavering support of our mission.
