Pam McGovern, Trustee – Social Action Committee Chair

Pam is a Jersey girl, born in Colonia, NJ, and graduated from Monmouth College and then went on to get her Masters from Stevens Institute, both with degrees in computer science. Pam was raised Jewish although her mother was catholic and her father was Jewish, and she celebrated both religions’ holidays. Pam and her husband John raised their daughter Jessica in the Jewish faith. She and John have been married for 29 years. They moved to Middletown in 1992.

The McGovern’s joined MRT when their daughter was in second grade to give her a Jewish education. Pam co-chaired the Membership Committee in the past and is now Chair of the Social Action Committee. She says she initially was a bit intimidated about chairing such an involved and successful group of people but then she quickly realized how supportive everyone was and she is glad she accepted the position on the Board!

Pam works in software development at AT&T. In her spare time, she likes to play tennis, go biking, sit by the beach, listen to live music, and making jewelry and hang with her friends.
