On behalf of Deborah Borda, we’d like to thank the Academy.
No, our much-lauded President and CEO didn’t win an Oscar. But she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts & Sciences last weekend in Cambridge, Mass., where the Academy is headquartered. Above, Borda (right) shakes hands with Geraldine L. Richmond, Secretary and Board Member of the Academy.
Borda was in good company: fellow inductees included President Barack Obama, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Tom Hanks, and Katherine Farley, Chairman of Lincoln Center (also pictured).
The Academy “serves the nation as a champion of scholarship, civil dialogue, and useful knowledge” and “convenes leaders from the academic, business, and government sectors to respond to the challenges facing the nation and the world.”
