In 2009 Eleanor V. Horne retired from Educational Testing Service (ETS) after a career that spanned 40 years. She recently served as  Second Vice Chair of NNSTOY.

Under Horne’s leadership at ETS—most recently as Vice President of the ETS Social Investment Fund—ETS created a strong community and philanthropic presence and developed active and enduring collaborations in the local community and with a number of national organizations committed to increasing educational equity and access of women, people of color, and those with limited financial means.

Horne is actively engaged in organizations committed to improving education, expanding social justice, and enhancing communities. The Lawrence Township, New Jersey resident is a full-time community servant. She is Co-President of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail Corporation, a project to design and build a 22-mile multi-purpose trail connecting Lawrence and Hopewell Townships. This is the only citizen-led trail construction project of this type in the country. She has chaired the boards of the Wells Fargo Regional Foundation, the National Council for Research on Women, and The College of New Jersey. She is currently a member of the boards of the D & R Greenway Land Trust, the College of New Jersey, Young Audiences, and Princeton Day School.

Horne is the recipient of many awards and honors from local and national organizations. She received an honorary doctorate for a career of public service from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in 2006. In 2008 the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities recognized her for her career commitment to Black Colleges. Other awards include the 2011 Spirit of Education Award from the Mercer County Community College Foundation, 2010 New Jersey Governor’s Award for Arts Education, and the 2009 Spirit of Community Award from the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education.

The roles that mean the most to Horne are mother to Monica Vaughn and grandmother to Brittany, Michael, and Kevin Vaughn.
