President Rose Shares ‘Full Power of the Common Good’ on Instagram

President Clayton Rose visited Broadway Housing Communities, spending time with founder Ellen Baxter ’75, H’05, company CFO Mary Ann Vilari ’75, and BHC board member Roman Jackson ’07 in New York Monday, commemorating his impressions with a post on his Instagram account.

Today was a day to witness the full power of the Common Good and to spend time with some amazing alums. I visited Broadway Housing Communities’ Sugar Hill project. BHC was founded and is run by Ellen Baxter ’75 H ’05 (center), a remarkable person who has dedicated herself to helping those individuals and families in New York who are in the most difficult economic situations, and what she has created works! Check out BHC and Sugar Hill at Mary Ann Villari ’75 (second from the left) is BHC’s CFO and has been working with Ellen for about 15 years. Both Ellen and Mary Ann have been awarded our Common Good Award. On the left is Roman Jackson ’07, who works for the philanthropic arm of JP Morgan Chase and sits on the board of BHC. There are a number of other Polar Bears who have been or are currently involved with BHC. Finally, on the right, is the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art and Story Telling artist-in-residence, Derek Fordjour. His art is amazing, as is his passion for engaging with the kids. #bowdoin
