Board of Directors

From its earliest years, The Foote School has been guided by dedicated parents and community members who have volunteered to serve on its Board of Directors. The Board is responsible for providing strategic vision and direction; financial stewardship and oversight of campus facilities; as well as appointing, evaluating and supporting the Head of School. Its members are elected to staggered four-year terms by The Foote School Association, the nonprofit corporation of which all Foote parents or guardians are members.

Wick R. Chambers '62

Board Member Since 2017
Wick graduated from Foote in 1962. After graduating from Yale College in 1971, he served for a year in VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) working in a program that served elders in the New Haven community. Since graduating from the Vermont Law School, cum laude, in 1978, he has practiced law in New Haven for 38 years. Initially he did insurance defense work before joining what was then known as Carmody & Torrance, where Wick was assigned to the corporate commercial practice area. Wick then joined the Winnick law firm where for 20 years he represented People’s United Bank in a variety of matters including negotiating software and other IT contracts. Having previously been a partner for many years, he is now Of Counsel to the New Haven firm of Winnick Ruben Hoffnung Peabody & Mendel, where his primary area of interest is legal ethics. Wick is chairman of the Board of Benhaven, Inc. and president of the Board of the Victim Rights Center of Connecticut.

Cecie, a Foote alumna, is deputy director of the Yale Center for British Art. She attended Hollins University as well as programs in arts administration at Harvard and University of California Berkeley. She started her museum career in the American Arts Department of the Yale University Art Gallery. After a three-year assignment in the Museums and Historical Organizations Program at the National Endowment for the Humanities in Washington, she returned to New Haven to join the staff of the Yale Center for British Art. While for many years she focused her energies on the public dimension of the museum, Cecie is now involved with the conservation of the center's landmark building by Louis I. Kahn. Cecie served as acting director of the Yale Center on two occasions and on the boards of the American Association of Museums, New England Museum Association and the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington.

Kindergartners learn about measurement and proportion—along with concepts of community—while building “crate schools” as part of an interdisciplinary unit that helps them get to know the school.
