The Oklahoma City Community Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of Leigh Ann Albers, David J. Feroli and Christin V. Mugg to its board of Trustees, as well as new staff Jennifer Meckling, Rachel Mouton and Laura Moon. In addition, Dr. Steven C. Agee assumed the role of board chairman.
Dean of Meinders School of Business at Oklahoma City University, Agee has served as an Oklahoma City Community Foundation Trustee since 2012. Agee replaces Bond Payne as chairman, who served two years and will remain on the board as a Trustee.
As chairman, Agee will direct a 15-member board comprised of local civic and business leaders. The board governs the policies, administration, activities and grant decisions of the Community Foundation, which administers more than 1,600 charitable endowments and is ranked as one of the nation’s largest community foundations.
“I’m honored and delighted to have a leadership role with this organization at such a distinctive time,” said Agee. “In 2019, the Community Foundation will celebrate 50 years as our community’s area resource for charitable giving. I look forward to being a part of this momentous celebration and to help continue their tradition of excellence.”

A civic leader, Feroli is a certified public accountant and retired partner of the international accounting firm KPMG LLP. Mugg is a partner at Mugg, Scott and Winston, a local estate planning firm, and has directed her clients to the Community Foundation for charitable giving for many years.
