Carey Mayer, '94 FAA, appointed to IMSA Board of Trustees

Dewberry’s Carey Mayer, AIA, LEED AP, was recently appointed by Illinois Governor Pat Quinn to the board of trustees for the Illinois Math and Science Academy (IMSA). Mayer has a long history with the IMSA – a publicly funded high school for gifted students – having graduated from the school in 1990 as a member of their second class. She is the third alumni trustee member, and has been appointed to one of three Illinois private industry positions on the board, succeeding one of the founding board members who served for nearly three decades.

During her four-year appointment, Mayer will be responsible for providing strategic direction on policy and upcoming major initiatives, including the implementation of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) School Study. In her position, Mayer will continue to support IMSA’s mission to ignite and nurture creative, ethical, scientific minds that advance the human condition.

“I look forward to serving in a new role at an institution that changed my life. My time as a student at IMSA provided me with the skills and confidence to pursue a career in architecture and instilled in me the love of solving problems. I hope to encourage gifted and talented individuals, especially women, into the STEM fields.”

In 2010, Mayer was named one of 40 Leaders Under 40, an annual celebration of leadership in central Illinois sponsored by InterBusiness Issues.
