MCLA's Richardello Elected to Second Term on the New England Regional Council of the College Board


NORTH ADAMS, MASS. - Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) announces that Denise Richardello, vice president of enrollment and external relations, has been elected to a second term to the New England Regional Council of the College Board.

The term, which will run for three years, follows a one-year term on the Council, which Richardello served by a special appointment. Most recently, Richardello attended the annual New England Regional Forum in Boston where she facilitated a workshop on the Berkshire Compact's work related to starting early in getting young students on college campuses to raise the aspirations to attend college. 

According to MCLA President Mary K. Grant, Richardello's association with the New England Regional Council of the College Board is a natural extension of her work at MCLA, as she provides opportunities for students' success at the College and throughout New England. 

"Denise has extensive experience in admissions and enrollment management," Grant said. "Her reputation and the relationships she has established in public higher education across the region will continue to serve the Board well as it considers vital issues of student access and affordability." 

A non-profit, membership organization committed to excellence and equity in education, the

Board's mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity. The New England Regional Council consists of between 24 and 30 members representing the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
