At the September meeting of the Cayuga Community College Board of Trustees, Caryl Frame of Skaneateles, a second-year Cayuga student at the Auburn campus, was sworn in as Student Trustee for 2010–11. Frame was elected by fellow students at the end of the spring 2010 semester. A 2009 graduate of Skaneateles High School, she is majoring in liberal arts with a concentration in theatre. Active in several area theatre companies, Frame has served since 2008 as stage manager or assistant stage manager for eight shows produced by Skaneateles High School, Skaneateles Summer Theatre, Auburn Players, and Cayuga's Harlequin Productions. During the summer 2010 season, she was a stage management production assistant for four musicals at Merry-Go-Round Playhouse.
The college is governed by a ten-member Board of Trustees. The Governor appoints four trustees for seven-year terms; five are appointed by the Cayuga County Legislature for seven-year terms; a student trustee is elected annually and serves for one academic year.
