Our Board is comprised of an outstanding group of dedicated members who are leaders in business, medicine, law, education, and community service. We are especially proud to count among our Board descendants of some of the School’s original founders. They exemplify one of Cotting’s greatest strengths: its continuity of service to children for more than a century.
