We would like to express our appreciation to a trustee who has recently retired from various fund boards after having served shareholders for many years.
Anne Mills became a trustee on the board of Aquila Tax-Free Trust of Arizona at the inception of the fund in 1986, and joined the boards of Aquila Tax-Free Fund of Colorado and Aquila Churchill Tax-Free Fund of Kentucky when both funds were launched in 1987. In later years, she also joined the boards of Aquila Narragansett Tax-Free Income Fund and Aquila Tax-Free Fund For Utah. She was elected Independent Chair of both Aquila Tax-Free Fund of Colorado and Aquila Tax-Free Trust of Arizona in 2005, and served as Independent Chair of Aquila Municipal Trust from October 2013 until her retirement. In addition, Anne served as a trustee of funds sponsored by Aquila’s predecessor companies.
While serving on fund boards with Aquila Group of Funds, Anne has pursued a number of business interests, and dedicated years of service to a variety of educational, charitable and religious organizations. She was an active volunteer with her alma mater, Brown University, for which she served as president of the Brown Alumni Association, class gift committee member, and as an Alumni Trustee on the Brown Corporation. She was a recipient of the Brown Bear Award, given by the Brown Alumni Association, in recognition of her “outstanding and wide-ranging personal service rendered to the University over a period of years.”
Mrs. Mills has provided fund shareholders with years of dedication, professionalism and thoughtful stewardship, and has served as a resource to her fellow trustees. We are very proud to have worked with Anne, appreciative of her years of service, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
