HiTOPS Welcomes Two New Trustees

HiTOPS Adolescent Health and Education Center of Princeton is pleased to announce the addition of George Benaur and Grayson Barber to their Board of Trustees.

Mr. Benaur, an experienced U.S. business lawyer specializing in contracts and dispute resolution, has been selected as New Jersey Super Lawyers® Rising Star for the past three years and in 2014 was selected to the New Jersey “Leaders of the Bar” list, formerly known as “40 under 40”. In addition to a broad range of business litigations in federal and state courts across the country, George works on corporate deals, contracts, risk analysis, due diligence, and other compliance projects. In 2013, George served as the chair of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professionals Group, and remains on the steering committee this year. He recently completed Volunteer Connect’s pilot program Board Connect, and joins his first non-profit board this year.

Ms. Barber is a longtime admirer of HiTOPS and its services in our community. Her interest in reproductive health care dates from working at a Planned Parenthood clinic in the 1970s. As an attorney she worked in private practice, followed by several years as a volunteer for civil liberties organizations like the ACLU and EFF. In 2013 she received the Intellectual Freedom Award bestowed by the New Jersey Library Association. She served on the New Jersey Privacy Study Commission, the state Supreme Court Special Committee on Public Access to Court Records, and the Individual Rights Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association. As a preceptor at Princeton University, Grayson contributed to courses on discrimination and the law. She served on a number of nonprofit boards, including the national board of the ACLU and the Princeton Public Library. She retired from the practice of law in March 2014. As a privacy advocate, she continues to serve on the board of the Electronic Privacy Information Center and is pleased to join the board of HiTOPS.
