(Western Springs, IL) – The Legacy Guild, which provides college scholarship and mentoring to local students who have lost a parent, announces additions to their Executive Board.

The organization is proud to welcome Mike Possley (La Grange) and Jennifer Conroyd (La Grange) as new members to the Legacy Guild Executive Board.

Mike Possley has been a La Grange resident since 2010 along with his wife Britt, and two children, Aidan and McKenna. He is a member of the Fixed Income Asset Management team at Robert W. Baird.

“I have always admired the work and mission of the Legacy Guild. Parenting is a team sport and the impact that the Legacy Guild has had on the lives of families that have lost a parent is tremendous. Starting as a donor many years ago I became involved in supporting this mission and am honored to be part of the team that furthers this great cause. It is nothing short of amazing what the founding members and Board have accomplished over the last decade and I look forward to continuing their great work in the future.”

Jennifer Conroyd has lived in La Grange for 25+ years along with her husband John and three sons. She is the founder of Fluid Running.

“I am truly honored to be joining the Legacy Guild Board. I have been a supporter of this amazing organization since its inception. I was both blessed and heartbroken to have known some of the people for whom the Legacy Guild was created. As a member of this community for over 25 years, this organization is ‘nearest and dearest’ to my heart. I look forward to helping expand the great work that the Legacy Guild does for the young people in our community who have experienced the loss of a parent.”
