Board Welcomes Two New Members, Elects Officers

The New Trier High School District 203 Board of Education welcomed two new members and elected new officers. The Board also said farewell to two outgoing members who are leaving after eight years of service each.

Jean Hahn of Glencoe and Brad McLane of Winnetka both were sworn in as new members, while incumbent Board member Cathy Albrecht of Wilmette began her second four-year term on the Board. All three ran unopposed in the April 2 municipal elections after their endorsement by the New Trier Caucus. The new Board elected Albrecht as president and Marc Glucksman of Glencoe as vice president.

Hahn was a member of the Glencoe District 35 Board of Education from 2011-2019. She has served on a number of volunteer and community organizations, including the Highland Park/Highwood Legal Aid Clinic, the League of Women Voters of Glenview/Glencoe, the Village of Glencoe's Sustainability Working Group and Task Force, and Family Service of Glencoe. Hahn holds a B.A. in political science from the University of California at Santa Barbara and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. She is the parent of a current New Trier sophomore and an incoming freshman.

McLane, an executive search consultant, has served on several municipal boards in Winnetka, including as a commissioner for the Winnetka Park District and Winnetka Plan Commission, and as a member of the Design Review Board. His community involvement also includes the Winnetka Caucus Council, Parks Foundation, Paddle Tennis Club Board, and chair of Winnetka Congregational Church. McLane holds a B.A. in architecture and organizational behavior from Yale University and an MBA from the University of Chicago. He is the parent of two New Trier graduates and a current freshman.

Lori Goldstein and Patrick O'Donoghue of Wilmette, who both were first elected to the District 203 Board of Education in 2011, exited the Board after serving two terms. Goldstein, an employment attorney, was the Board's vice president in 2016 and 2017 and served as liaison to the North Shore Special Education District and on the District's Community Engagement and Policy Committees. O'Donoghue, a municipal engineering specialist, served as liaison to the Booster Club and on the District's Naming and Facilities Steering Committees.
