RR's Megan O’Bryan to Lead Tri-C Foundation
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) has selected Rocky River resident Megan O’Bryan as vice president of development and the Cuyahoga Community College Foundation.
O’Bryan brings two decades of philanthropic and leadership experience to the Tri-C Foundation, which raises funds to benefit students through scholarships and enhanced academic programming. She currently heads the Cleveland Transformation Alliance.
She called her new position an opportunity to help Tri-C students succeed and contribute to the future of Northeast Ohio. “Cuyahoga Community College works tirelessly to bolster the vitality of our region by empowering individuals and allowing them to achieve their goals,” O’Bryan said. “I am very excited to join Tri-C and play a part in students realizing their college and career dreams.”
O’Bryan brought her drive for educational opportunity and achievement to the Tri-C Board of Trustees, on which she served from 2012 until September 2015.
“Ms. O’Bryan has proven her dedication for ensuring access to quality education for everyone in our community,” said Alex Johnson, president of Tri-C. “That passion and insight, combined with her commitment to the College’s mission, will be invaluable for the success of Tri-C students.”
Her work within the community has led to leadership positions on boards and committees with numerous Northeast Ohio organizations.
“Ms. O’Bryan’s involvement across Greater Cleveland has forged the relationships and perspective that will strengthen the Foundation and the College,” said Rick Chiricosta, chairperson of the Tri-C Foundation. “Her leadership will carry the Foundation into a new era.”
Community support allows the Tri-C Foundation to turn student dreams into realities. In the last academic year, the Foundation awarded a record $1.7 million to Tri-C students to open doors to higher education. The Foundation oversees more than 150 scholarship funds.
