Ethel Evans Lipsitz '51Collegiate School in New York City and Wyoming Seminary in Kingston have two things in common: They are among the oldest private independent schools in the nation, and Ethel Lipsitz has made important contributions to each.
Because she enjoyed learning and her parents wanted her to attend the best school in the area, Ethel entered Sem as a freshman in 1947.She distinguished herself in the Adelphian Society, the "Opinator" and the yearbook and served as class historian and vice president of her senior class.Her class voted her "best all around girl" and she was named to the Cum Laude Society.
Ethel continued her academic career at Connecticut College, earning a bachelor's degree in English in 1955.She joined Lord & Taylor and took part in their executive training program, working for the firm for five years.While she and her husband Hilary Lipsitz, president of his own music production company, raised their three children, Ethel was an active volunteer with Cathedral School at St. John the Devine, Collegiate School and Nightingale-Bamford School (sons Evan and Andrew attended Collegiate while daughter Kate attended Nightingale-Bamford).
In 1983 Collegiate School invited Ethel to join their development team, naming her Development Director two years later.During her 17-year tenure the school launched two highly successful capital campaigns, integrated the development office into the school community and expanded the school's development efforts.
Although she retired in 2000, Ethel continues supporting the school by serving on its Parents of Alumni Council.She also serves on various councils and committees for the American Museum of Natural History, New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center.
Ethel has been a dedicated supporter of Wyoming Seminary, serving on Sem's President's Council and establishing the Myrddyn and Marjorie Evans Scholarship Endowment Fund in honor of her parents.She also attends Sem alumni gatherings in New York City.
