The Manchester University Board of Trustees has welcomed four new members. They include leaders in higher education, health, marketing and public service.

The new members are Ding-Jo Hsia Currie, Madalyn Metzger, Michael Packnett and William "Mark" Rosenbury. With the exception of Packnett, all of the new members are graduates of Manchester University.

"We welcome the extraordinary leadership and knowledge these four new members bring," said Manchester President Dave McFadden. "Their diverse backgrounds and expertise will help Manchester build on its legacy of educating those with ability and conviction who go on to make a difference in the world."

Currie is an internationally recognized leader in higher education. Among her numerous accomplishments throughout her career, Currie founded China's Higher Education Foundation, which promotes higher education through collaboration between East and West. She won the Manchester University Alumni Honor Award in 2012.

Metzger graduated from Manchester in 1999 and currently serves as marketing director for Everence Financial in Goshen. She previously worked for Church World Service which provides disaster relief and refugee assistance around the world.

Packnett is president and CEO of Parkview Health, a position he has held since 2006. He is also a member of several other boards including the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, the Indiana Chamber and Greater Fort Wayne Inc.

Rosenbury graduated from Manchester in 1969 and, along with his wife, is a regular supporter of the Manchester Fund and created the Rosenbury Family Endowed Scholarship, gifts from which have supported several projects at Manchester. Now retired, Rosebury serves as board president of the Iowa Legal Aid Foundation and board treasurer of the ACLU of Iowa.
