CHATHAM, NJ – Michael Luke of Summit has joined the Board of Trustees at ECLC of New Jersey, a non-profit that offers "Education, Careers and Lifelone Community" to more than 750 students with special needs.

Luke of Summit is an attorney who works in Ernst & Young’s (E&Y) national tax department. He learned about ECLC through his wife, Katelyn, who was a teacher for five years at ECLC’s school for students with special needs in Chatham.

“She loved her time there, especially the wonderful students and devoted staff,” Luke said. “I was always impressed with learning about ECLC and how it provides a variety of services to individuals with special needs, including schools, transition services, job placements, and independent living skills. I'm looking forward to helping ECLC of New Jersey continue to pursue its honorable objectives."

Dougie Hamilton of Chatham also joined the board. Like Luke, Hamilton also works at E&Y.

“I am truly honored to be working with such an incredible organization that provides education and support services to such wonderful children and adults,” Hamilton said.

Hamilton has a background in financial services. He has been with a number of corporations, including Barclays Bank, Lloyds Banking Group and Accenture, prior to his position at E&Y.

Since moving to Chatham, he has been a strong supporter of ECLC. Thanks to Hamilton’s efforts, E&Y was a sponsor of ECLC’s annual golf fund-raising outing last summer and was the top sponsor for ECLC’s inaugural walkathon in October. He also attended the walk with his parents, William and Lesley.
