Lucas Spielfogel, Executive Director
Lucas joined BRYC in July 2012 and is poised to become Executive Director effective January 2013. Immediately prior to joining BRYC, Lucas taught 7th grade Social Studies at Baker Middle School—with Teach for America—and was named Teacher of the Year in each of his two years. From Boca Raton, Florida, Lucas graduated with a B.A. in History from Yale University in May 2010, where he earned All-Ivy Academic Honors. An avid athlete, Lucas rowed varsity all four years and was team captain his senior year. As a teacher, Lucas not only made tremendous gains in the classroom, he coached the boys’ basketball team and raised $4,000 to furnish the team with new uniforms and practice gear, launched a community service club, and raised more than $10,000 to lead a group of his students to Washington, D.C. Given his experiences, determination, and commitment to high expectations, Lucas is a tremendous asset to BRYC and will help ensure our growth for years to come.
