The Midway University Board of Trustees is pleased to announce it has added two new members. Joining the board are Edie C. Green (Owner/President, Bicycle Face, Lexington, KY) and Christa Marrillia (Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer, Keeneland, Lexington, KY).

“We are delighted to welcome these new members,” said Board Chair, Donna Moore Campbell ’62.  “Each of these businesswomen brings different talents and expertise to Midway’s Board of Trustees.  Edie brings an entrepreneurial background and continues the Green family’s long-time commitment of supporting the University.  Christa will generate an even stronger relationship with the equine industry and share her special connection to the City of Midway where she grew up.  We look forward to their service to the University.”

The two were officially sworn in as Midway University Trustees at the February 23, 2023 board meeting held on campus.
