Greensboro College has named three people, two of them alumni, to its governing body, the Board of Trustees.

The three are Thomas Clawson, Kevin Green '78 and Lisa Wall '89. Only Wall has served previously.

Clawson is president and CEO of the National Board of Certified Counselors, based in Greensboro, and its affiliates, Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE), NBCC International (NBCC-I) and the NBCC Foundation. He holds a B.S. degree from West Virginia University and three advanced degrees, including a doctorate of education (Ed.D.) in counseling from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va. He currently serves as an officer on the Board of The Center for Quality Assurance in International Education. He was a practicing school counselor, private practice counselor, and a counselor educator for 15 years before joining NBCC as CEO in 1989.

Kevin Green '78 has been a Greensboro-area Realtor for more than 20 years. He served as president of the Greensboro Realtors' Association in 2007 and is president-elect for 2015. He formerly chaired the Greensboro War Memorial Commission and currently serves on the State Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission. At Greensboro College, he majored in accounting and played on the men's golf and soccer teams.

Lisa Wall '89 is an executive with FedEx, where she has worked since 1994. She previously served on the Board of Trustees from 2007 through 2010. She also previously served on the college's Board of Visitors and was High Point chair of the college's Promise to Keep capital campaign. A 2011 recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award, she received her bachelor's degree in business administration and played on the basketball team while at GC.

Trustees normally serve four-year terms and are eligible for appointment to a second consecutive term before being required to rotate off the board. No trustees rotated off the board at the end of 2013.
