HVC Welcomes 5 Board Members

The Harvard Varsity Club has welcomed five new members to its Advisory Board including Treavor Scales ’13 whose name will appear on the HVC ballot in November for the Elected Board. Joining Scales on the HVC Board are Allison Feaster ’98, Raishaun McGhee ’17, Ngozi Musa ’19, and Cynthia Weber ’88.

Scales was a four-time All-Ivy League selection at running back and helped the Harvard football team to an Ivy League championship in 2011. He is tied for third in program history with 29 career rushing touchdowns and is fifth on the career rushing list with 2,823 yards. Since Commencement he has risen through the ranks at ESPN and is currently a host of the widely popular SportsCenter on Snapchat. Scales has also remained active within the Harvard Varsity Club, serving as host of this year’s virtual Senior Letterwinners’ Dinner and participating in the Career Services Program.

Feaster was inducted into the HVC Hall of Fame in 2013 as one of, if not the greatest, women’s basketball player in Ivy League history. A three-time Ivy League Player of the Year and four-time All-Ivy League first team selection, Feaster received the Radcliffe Prize at her Senior Letterwinners’ Dinner as the top female athlete in the Class of 1998 and still ranks first in program history in career points (2,312), rebounds (1,157), and steals (290). She led Harvard  to three-straight Ivy League championships and NCAA Tournament appearances, and in 1998 she scored 35 points to lead the 16th-seeded Crimson over top-seeded Stanford in the NCAA Tournament, marking the first time in either the men’s or women’s tournament that a 16 seed had beaten a 1 seed. Feaster currently serves as the Director of Player Development for the Boston Celtics after enjoying a 19-year professional career in both the WNBA and Europe.

McGhee was a part of Harvard football’s last “perfect team,” helping the Crimson go 10-0 overall and 7-0 in the Ivy League in 2014. That season culminated when the Crimson hosted ESPN’s College GameDay prior to defeating Yale for a record eighth-straight time. McGhee earned All-Ivy League honors as a defensive back in 2016 and received Harvard football’s William Pain LaCroix Trophy for enthusiasm, sportsmanship and loyalty in 2017. Currently working as an investment banking analyst for Credit Suisse, McGhee has remained active within the HVC as the co-founder and driving force behind Bowl For Ben, an annual fundraiser which in its first two years has raised more than $55,000 for The Benson M. Abercrombie ’21 Fund.

Musa was a member of five Ivy League championship teams, helping the Crimson track & field program to back-to-back indoor and outdoor titles in 2016 and 2017 and the cross country program to its first title in 31 years in 2016. She won five individual Heps championships as a sprinter and was voted captain as a senior in 2018-19. In addition to her work as a marketing specialist at 6M Geriatrics & Hospital Medicine and as the founder of Aesthetics & Athletics, a platform and podcast to empower and inspire the “athlete” in every woman, Musa served as a panelist for the first event in the HVC’s series titled Race, Sport, and Harvard: Conversations and Active Steps Towards Change.

Weber, a first team All-Ivy League doubles selection in 1987, helped the women’s tennis team to four-consecutive Ivy League championships, four NCAA Tournament appearances, and a perfect 27-0 record against the Ancient Eight during her four years. As co-captain in 1988 she led the Crimson to a 20-8 overall record with the team’s 20 wins standing as the most in program history until 2003. Weber, who earned her MBA from Harvard Business School in 1993 and formerly worked for the NFL in corporate sponsorships and strategic planning, has remained active within the Harvard alumni community as an HVC Lifetime Member and co-president of the Harvard-Radcliffe Club of Westchester.
