Thomas E. Board

Important facts

I was born on the East Coast of the United States and grew up in Bethesda, Maryland. I attended Radnor Elementary School, Thomas W. Pyle Junior High School, and Walt Whitman Senior High School. I graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in Mathematics in 1973 and with an MS in Computer Science in 1979. I worked for 38 years at Northwestern, a private institution located in Chicago and Evanston, Illinois. My field was Information Technology.

Carol Meynen and I met as undergraduates at Northwestern and were married in 1973. She is a physician. We have lived in Chicago, Bethesda, Milwaukee, and the Chicago suburbs of Wilmette, Winnetka and Northbrook. We have had many adventures together. After 13 years of marriage, Carol and I were blessed with a daughter who is married and on her own.

In 1995, I was baptized a Christian in the United Methodist Church. I am a member of Trinity United Methodist Church of Wilmette, Illinois. I sing in the church choir, ring in the handbell choir, and teach adult Bible study. I have accompanied my wife on several mission trips to Senegal, West Africa since 2005.
