Alexa G. Colinco, SecretaryHello! My name is Alexa Gail (AG) Colinco, and I will graduate, from Cornell University, in May 2020 with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. After I graduate, I will intern with Cru, a Christian fellowship in Ithaca, then begin medical school to pursue a career in medical missions. I joined the board in 2019 after finding the organization to be a God-glorifying example of faith and love in action. In my free time I love leading worship, writing music, hiking, and volunteering in Ithaca.
Martha SmithWhen invited to join the CFP Board, Martha said it was an easy “yes” because she had seen what a great presence CFP had in the community. She saw this as an excellent opportunity for members from different congregations (she's at Ithaca’s Calvary Baptist Church) to demonstrate how successful we can be by working together. Martha and her husband Jerry have lived in Ithaca 44 years, they have two children, Maya & Lloyd.
