New Trustee Welcomed

Tiffony Cesero has had success as a businesswoman, leader and active volunteer

As she falls asleep at night, Tiffony Cesero often reflects on how she helped someone that day. With extensive volunteer experience, Bridgewater State’s new trustee typically has much to ponder.

“That’s been in my bloodstream, just to help,” she said. “There’s no such thing as ‘I can’t.’ Anything is possible.”

A community leader and the president and CEO of the security company K-9 Mercantile Protection Inc., Cesero brings a passion for helping students that is rooted in her family experience. She raised three children of her own, another four through marriage, as well as a niece and a close family friend.

“I want to always make a difference and be impactful in the lives of our leaders of tomorrow,” she said.

To that end, Cesero serves on boards of the Old Colony YMCA, Sunrise Rotary Club and Salvation Army. She mentors high school students with disabilities who are transitioning into the workforce.

Cesero is a “dynamic individual,” with a passion for volunteering and significant experience fundraising and supporting education for marginalized and underserved individuals, ɫƵ President Frederick W. Clark Jr., '83, said.

ɫƵ’s new trustee also co-owns the construction supply company ST Materials and Equipment. Her many leadership positions include serving on the board of the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce and, since 2019, the Business Advisory Board for ɫƵ’s Ricciardi College of Business.

She appreciates the hands-on learning and numerous opportunities available at Bridgewater State. Students have the chance to find their own way and identity, she said.

“It’s unbelievable to be afforded this opportunity,” Cesero said of being appointed to ɫƵ’s Board of Trustees by Gov. Maura Healey. “I’m very honored.”

Cesero attended commencement at Gillette Stadium, an event that she said showcased the sense of community at ɫƵ and the dedication of faculty, librarians and staff to supporting students.

“You can feel the warmth, acceptance and love,” she said. “People care.”
