Rositta E. Kenigsberg, executive vice president of the South Florida Holocaust Documentation and Education Center in Downtown Hollywood, is the newest appointee to the Broward County School Board Diversity Committee for School Year 2010-2011.

Kenigsberg, known for her pioneer work in combating racism, bigotry, hate and indifference, was nominated by School Board Member Jennifer Gottlieb.

“I am very pleased that Rositta Kenigsberg has accepted the appointment to serve as one of my representatives to the Broward School Board’s Diversity Committee,” Gottlieb said. “Her background and experience will not only be of great benefit to the committee members, but brings a wealth of knowledge to the students of Broward County. I know she will serve us well.”

Established in 1996, the Diversity Committee’s primary responsibility is to assist the Superintendent and the School Board in meeting their commitment to promoting diversity. The Committee currently consists of 31 members, 27 of whom the School Board appointed.
