LT. GOVERNOR WYMAN NAMED TO BOARD OF DIRECTORS
OF AMERICAN SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
HARTFORD, CT - Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman has been appointed to the board of directors of the American School for the Deaf.
Wyman, a longtime supporter of the West Hartford school, was appointed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who also named West Hartford Deputy Mayor Shari Cantor to the board.
Lt. Governor Wyman began her service in government more than 30 years ago when she successfully ran for a seat on her local school board so she could have a say in the education of her two young daughters. She served four terms as State Representative from the 53 rd District and in 1994 was the first woman ever to be elected Connecticut State Comptroller, an office she held for 16 years.
Since being elected Connecticut's 108 th Lieutenant Governor in 2010, she has been a true partner to Governor Malloy as they work to help Connecticut recover from the economic downturn and build a foundation for long-term stability and prosperity.
Lt. Governor Wyman and her husband Michael live in Tolland, along with their two daughters and their husbands and five grandchildren.
Deputy Mayor Cantor has been a member of the West Hartford Town Council since 2004. A UConn-educated CPA, she started at Coopers and Lybrand in public accounting and then joined Cigna Corporation working in investments and underwriting.
She has served as Chair of the Board of Directors of UConn's Hillel Chapter, Chair of the American Heart Association of North Central Connecticut and on the Board of Community Trustees for the Jewish Federal of Greater Hartford and member of the West Hartford Rotary. She lives in West Hartford with her husband, Michael, and their four sons.
