Donna Browder Evans

Donna Browder Evans, the dean of the 2,900-student college of education at Ohio State University, has been elected to a two-year term as the chairwoman of the Council of the Great City Colleges of Education. Ms. Evans was selected by an 11-member steering committee and succeeds Phillip Rusche, the dean of education at California State University-Nothridge and the council's chairman since 1993.

The council, based in Washington, is an affiliate of the Council of the Great City Schools, a coalition representing the nation's urban public school systems. The council of education colleges comprises deans from 75 universities that work with urban school leaders to improve public education.

Lawrence C. Patrick III

The Black Alliance for Educational Options has hired Lawrence C. Patrick III to be its president and chief executive officer. Before joining BAEO, Mr. Patrick, 26, founded Mega Schools, a Dallas-based educational technology company that helps urban schools use technology more effectively. BAEO is a national nonprofit organization in Washington that supports increased educational choice for parents of black students.

Mr. Patrick succeeds Kaleem Caire, who stepped down from the BAEO position to work for the American Education Reform Council. The AERC is a nonprofit organization based in Milwaukee, Wis., that also advocates educational options and parental choice.

Robert R. Bimonte has been named the executive director of the National Catholic Educational Association's elementary schools department. Mr. Bimonte currently serves as the secretary of Catholic education for the Diocese of Buffalo, N.Y.

He will succeed Robert Kealey, who plans to retire in June. Mr. Bimonte will assume his new role in August. Based in Washington, the NCEA represents more than 200,000 Catholic educators worldwide.
