Diana Ho ’71, who formerly served two terms as an alumna trustee, was re-elected to the Board in October 2006; her term will begin in July 2007. She received her BA with an emphasis in fine arts in 1971 and her MBA from UCLA in 1984. She is the founder and president of Management Arts, Inc., in Los Angeles, a virtual consulting organization that specializes in strategic planning, organizational development, executive coaching, and facilitation of communication for groups and organizations.

A necessity for Ho is a month-long sabbatical every year, when, she says, she focuses on artistic and creative projects, in order to re-charge her batteries. Ho was recognized earlier this year as Scripps College Volunteer of the Year, and a Scripps scholarship fund was established in her honor.
