Armintrout Joins Board
Elizabeth Armintrout '86 is Pomona's newest trustee

Elizabeth “Libby” Gates Armintrout, a 1986 Pomona alumna who majored in economics, is the newest member of the Pomona College Board of Trustees. The Seattle native also is president of the board of The Lakeside School, where she attended high school. Armintrout comes from a family of civic-minded leaders. In 1991, the Gates family was named the Philanthropic Family of the Year by Washington Gives and, in 1995, was the recipient of the First Citizen Award from the Seattle-King County Association of Realtors. Armintrout also is an honorary board member of the Program for Early Parenthood Support and serves on the community grants committee of The Seattle Foundation, as well as being a founding member of the Washington Women’s Foundation.

Other service organizations include Make-A-Wish Foundation of Washington State, United Way of King County and the 1990 Goodwill Games. In a 2004 foreword for Star Palate, a celebrity cookbook to benefit breast and ovarian cancer research, she wrote, “Whether we’re opening our homes to friends for entertainment or caring for someone who is unwell, we extend ourselves to nourish others.”

She and her husband, Douglas, live in Seattle with their three children.
