Napolitano Wins Second
Term as Alumni Trustee
September 13, 1999

Frank A. Napolitano has been re-elected by the alumni of the University to serve on the Board of Trustees for a second four-year term.

Napolitano, a principal in the firm of Napolitano and Wulster, a pharmaceutical search firm in Cheshire, earned three degrees from UConn: a bachelor's degree in 1966; a master's degree in 1971 and a Ph.D. in 1977.

"It is exciting to be part of the University's transformation and to serve on the Board of Trustees at such an important time in UConn's history," Napolitano says.

He was first elected to the Board of Trustees by the alumni body in 1995. The board includes two alumni trustees, each able to serve a maximum of two terms. The other alumni trustee is Louise Berry of Danielson.

Napolitano served on the UConn Alumni Association Board of Directors from 1983 to 1989 as vice president, president, and chair of numerous committees.

The winner of the University of Connecticut Alumni Service Award, Napolitano was a member of the Steering Committee of the Governor's Conference on Technology and served on the Board of Trustees of the Connecticut Community-Technical Colleges from 1990 to 1995.

His term was effective on September 1.
