June 13th, 2007 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. — The Plymouth State University Alumni Association has elected four new officers following a vote of its members. Laura Brusseau ’04, Patricia Donnelly-Sullivan ’82, Gregory J. Serapiglia ’96, and Claira Pirozzi-Monier ’62 have all been named to the association’s board of directors.

Laura Brusseau, a social studies educator at Laconia High School, joins the board of directors after having spent most of her undergraduate years serving the greater Plymouth community.

“I have kept in touch with many of my classmates and would continue to be a great resource in relaying information and garnering feedback on potential ideas,” said Brusseau.
As a student at PSU, Brusseau was class president as well as a member of the swimming and diving team. Brusseau also co-founded Homeless and Hunger Week at PSU, held positions on the student senate, and served as president of the Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society, an admission representative and a PASS tutor.

Bedford, N.H. resident Patricia Donnelly-Sullivan is a computer technology educator at the DuPont School in Allenstown.
“I believe it is time to take responsibility and lead by action, volunteer and assist in any way I can at Plymouth State University,” said Donnelly-Sullivan.

Previously a project manager at Expert Server Group in Bedford, Donnelly-Sullivan was an Olympic torchbearer in 2002 and has participated in every Boston Marathon-Jimmy Fund Walk since 1990. She has served on the board at the Joppa Hill Educational Farm from 2002–05 and was a member of the International Society of Technology Educators from 2004–06.

Gregory Serapiglia, an intermediate client administrative associate at State Street Global Advisors in Boston, was active in residence life as a student at Plymouth State.
“Looking back over the four years I spent at the university, I have fond memories of my time spent at Plymouth State, primarily time spent serving in various leadership capacities,” remarked Serapiglia.

A member of the Residence Hall Association and the Residence Council, Serapiglia was also a member of the Student Alumni Association for two years (1992–94) before becoming its president (1994–96). A volunteer at the American Red Cross and the United Way, Serapiglia holds a master’s degree from Northeastern University.

New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority Executive Director Claira Pirozzi-Monier has volunteer experience with organizations including the American Lung Association of New Hampshire, the American Red Cross and the Affordable Housing Advisory Council. Pirozzi-Monier has also been active within the PSU community serving on the PSUAA Volunteer Development Committee (1981), PSUAA Alumni Day Committee (1987) and the Harold Hyde Scholarship Committee (2002).

“I feel this is an opportunity to give something back to Plymouth State University for all it has given me,” said Pirozzi-Monier. “Plymouth State gave me a solid foundation in my formative years. It is important for our students of the twenty-first century to have the same opportunities.”
