David, long active in the Jewish community, took a seat on the CJM board of trustees. An eco- nomics major who is now senior vice president at PNC Financial Services Group and also a financial columnist, David used his financial expertise to help the museum raise funds to complete its new home, which opened in 2008. The Levines’ decade-long association with the CJM was a family affair, with their two children visiting the museum many times over the course of their young lives. “Our family loves attending the exhibitions, programs, and events,” he says. “And I want to teach our children the importance of giving back.” Earlier this year Levine took the reins as chair


of the board. His philosophy? “First, and most im - portantly, make others feel good about what they are doing. Second, have fun and never forget to say Thank you. Third, you can’t ask others to work late or make a leadership gift if you are not doing it yourself.” Levine has also given back to Skidmore. A


mem ber of the Council of 100, he has volunteered with the San Francisco Skidmore Club, the alumni board’s Nominating Committee, the Friends of the Presidents donors society, and the alumni-run Skidmore Business Network. “I loved the leader- ship opportunities I had at Skidmore,” he says, “and I am so appreciative for all that Skidmore has provided me. My closest friends today are my classmates from 20 years ago.” —PD
