As chair of the College’s Rivalry 150 Task Force, Barbara Levy ’77 provided months of remarkable vision, enthusiasm, energy, and leadership for the planning and execution of myriad events and details in connection with the three-day Celebrate Lafayette in New York weekend, including the public launch of the Live Connected, Lead Change campaign and the historic football game at Yankee Stadium.
Levy has served the College in numerous key roles, including chair of the Steering Committee for the October 2013 inauguration of President Alison Byerly and, currently, vice chair of the Campaign Executive Committee. She’s been a member of the Board of Trustees since 1998 and president of her class since 2002.
Her husband, Joe Hollander, has been an active partner in Lafayette activities. The impact of their support was recognized in 2008 when they were inducted into the Société d’Honneur. They are the parents of Rachel Hollander ’11 and Alyssa Hollander ’14.
In October, Levy received the Joseph E. Bell ’28 Award for distinguished service to the College.
