Carle, an associate attorney at The Reynolds Law Firm, joined the board in September. She is a past board and executive committee member of the Benton County Family Violence Council and Oregon Student Safety on the Move.
Carle previously worked as a Benton County deputy district attorney and a prosecuting attorney for the city of Eugene. She earned her bachelor’s degree at the University of California San Diego and her law degree from the University of Oregon School of Law.
“I am excited to be a part of an organization dedicated to making our communities better places to live and work,” Carle said. “As I looked for ways to be more involved, I could see that my work with and support of the Foundation will make a difference in people’s lives.”
Formed in 1972, the LBCC Foundation raises money to fund major new campus facilities, replace instructional equipment, expand technology, bring visiting scholars and cultural/educational programs to the college, and providing student scholarships, grants and loans. The Foundation has net assets of $6.4 million and raised $1.7 million in 2011.
The Foundation Board of Trustees helps support fundraising efforts, provides oversight of Foundation policy and budget, and provides guidance on areas within the college to receive Foundation funding.
