Framingham State University is pleased to announce that Gov. Deval
Patrick has appointed two new members to the University Board of Trustees – Richard C. Logan, founder and retired president and CEO of Medical Records Associates, Inc. and Dr. Joanne Berger-Sweeney, distinguished neuroscientist and Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Tufts University.
“It’s an honor to have Richard and Joanne join our volunteer Board of Trustees,” said Framingham State President Timothy J. Flanagan. “They bring a broad range of skills and knowledge to the board that will be critical as we continue to look for creative ways to keep Framingham State among the leaders in the state in terms of affordability and academic excellence.”
Logan, a member of Framingham State’s class of 1970, served as the Director of Medical Records at four hospitals, including Massachusetts General and Newton-Wellesley, prior to launching Medical Records Associates, Inc. He grew the company into the leading Health and Information Management Services firm in New England, prior to retiring in 2010.
Berger-Sweeney earned her PhD in Neurotoxicology from The Johns Hopkins
University. She is a professor of Biology at Tufts University, in addition to serving as Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. She previously taught for nearly 20 years at Wellesley College.
“Health care and science are two areas the University is seeking to grow enrollment and programming to meet the future workforce needs of the Commonwealth,” President Flanagan said. “Richard and Joanne’s extensive backgrounds in these topics should be a great asset to us as we move toward this goal.”
Their terms ends in March 2017.
The University is also pleased to announce that Framingham State senior Molly Goguen has been elected by her classmates as the Student Trustee on the Board of Trustees. She is president of her class and an academic peer tutor. As Student Trustee, she will serve as a voice for the student body on the board.
Paul C. Combe, President of American Student Assistance, has also been reappointed to the Board of Trustees, and will serve as vice chair, as well as the alumni representative. Combe earned his bachelor’s degree from Framingham State in 1972 and his master’s degree from the University in 1976.
The University would like to express its gratitude to Raymond Boulanger, a Business Law Attorney with Goodwin Proctor LLP, and Alice Pomponio, the Leader of North American Science Relations for AstraZeneca, who have completed their terms on the Board of Trustees. Both gave outstanding service to the University during their time on the board.
