Three New Trustees Join Pomona's Board

Three Pomona alumni—Lucila Arango Graham ’88, Jason Rosenthal ‘92 and M. Lynn Yonekura, M.D., ’70—have been elected to the Board of Trustees of Pomona College.

Graham has dedicated her career to education. Co-founder of The Odyssey Program, a private elementary school in Malibu that provides children with individualized attention in the classroom and diverse educational experiences, she oversees the school’s finances, budget, strategic planning, creation and implementation of curriculum, nationwide searches for teachers and administrators, student admissions, marketing, health insurance and business issues. For Pomona, Graham has been a longtime supporter of the College’s Latin American Studies Program and a member of Torchbearers since 1993.

Rosenthal is vice president and general manager of Customer Operations—East Region for Loudcloud, Inc., an Internet infrastructure company that builds and manages software, databases and other services. Following his studies at Pomona, he worked for Rebuild L.A., the economic development organization formed in the wake of the 1992 Los Angeles riots and earned a M.B.A. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. An active alumnus since his graduation, Rosenthal co-chaired his fifth reunion committee, established the Clark Jensen Memorial Fund and served as a member of the National Campaign Committee and as the Young Alumni Trustee in 1998.

After earning her M.D. from USC, Dr. Yonekura has spent almost 30 years working to improve health services for women and children in Los Angeles County. She is currently director of perinatal services and executive director of the Hope Street Family Center at the California Hospital Medical Center (CHMC), a birthing hospital that offers a comprehensive array of services for low-income families. Yonekura is also a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance and executive director of Options for Recovery: Harbor/South Bay (OFR), a comprehensive care program for pregnant and parenting chemically-dependent women and their children. Dr. Yonekura has received numerous honors including the Woman of the Year Award from Los Angeles County's Commission for Women in 1998. For Pomona, she has served on the Torchbearers Board (as president in 1997), on the Associates Board and on the Alumni Council/Alumni Fund Committee. She also participates in the College’s Career Development Volunteer Program.
