Committee Membership: Facilities, Policy, Legislative
Karen Roughley, along with her family, have been Three Village residents for over 12 years. She, and her husband Tom, have two daughters that will both be attending Ward Melville High School this fall. Since her children began kindergarten, Karen has been volunteering for various school organizations and has held leadership positions at Arrowhead Elementary PTA, Setauket Elementary PTA, Murphy Junior High School PTO, the Special Education PTA and Joint Council PTA. Karen has also held positions on a multitude of District led committees and most recently was chosen to sit on the Parent Advisory Committee for the NYSED Blue Ribbon Commission on new Graduation Measures.
Prior to choosing to stay home with her children, Karen worked for 16 years doing Corporate Communications, Business Continuity and Crisis Management for various investment banks. In these roles, comprehensive communications, security and the safety of employees was paramount. Her skills relied heavily on leadership, questioning and solving any situation that may arise, working with a team and managing large multimillion dollar budgets. Karen is looking forward to bringing these skills with her as a Board of Education Trustee.
Becoming a Board of Education Trustee is important to Karen because she wants every family and future families to be able to experience the staff, programs and experiences that her family has. She hopes to focus on creating a budget that is financially sustainable, addressing bullying, diversity and inclusion and to increase and promote career pathways after graduation. Karen’s passion is to advocate for every child, regardless of ability so they can have the best education and experiences possible.
