Kara Flyg

Senior Director, Development
McGovern Institute for Brain Research
Serving Our Community
Award presented by
Eric D. Evans, Director, Lincoln Laboratory

Next, I’d like you to meet Kara Flyg, Senior Director of Development at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research. Her colleagues recommended her for a Serving Our Community award because she has been powering research at McGovern for more than ten years— every year securing anywhere from $25 million to $100 million dollars in private support.

“Although this seems like magic,” her colleagues write, “We have witnessed the dedication and acumen with which Kara achieves this feat. The cumulative contributions of her efforts cannot be overstated. She's had an enormous positive impact on this community.”
