Neil Golub, the current chairman and former CEO of Price Chopper, was elected chair of the Board of Trustees at the Museum of Innovation and Science (miSci) on Tuesday.
Golub’s family has donated in the past to miSci and in October, miSci launched The Jane & Neil Golub Creative Learning Project, a five-year initiative to bring miSci’s collection of archives and artifacts to institutions across the country. Golub’s new role will see him helping miSci grow amid the pandemic.
"Neil and Jane Golub have long been benefactors and staunch supporters of miSci,” said miSci President Gina Gould. “Jane was a longtime ardent trustee and has been greatly missed since her passing. We were all delighted when Neil graciously accepted his nomination to become Chair of miSci's Board of Trustees. It is a testament to the continuing commitment that Neil and Jane Golub have provided to Schenectady, its community, its history, and its future. We are all honored to be working closely with Neil to move miSci forward."
