ICC Board of Trustees Seats New Members, Reorganizes

Illinois Central College Board of Trustees conducted a yearly reorganization at its April 27 regular meeting. Recently elected Carl Cannon of Peoria, Kelly Daniels of Peoria, Paula Davis of Groveland, were seated as new trustees serving six-year terms. Isaac Jones of Morton, who ran unopposed for a one-year term in a student-body election, was seated as student representative, replacing outgoing Hellen Roeser.

The Board also recognized retiring members Don Brennan and Sue Portscheller, as well as Doug Stewart, who was appointed to fulfill four months of the term left vacant after the death of James Polk in November 2016. Brennan served on the Board for six years, and Portscheller served for 18 years. The Board also unanimously approved Diane Lamb as Chair and Gale Thetford as Vice-Chair, each serving one-year rotations in those roles.

Cannon is the founder of the ELITE youth behavioral program in Peoria. Davis is the retired superintendent of Pekin Community High School, and Daniels is an instructional designer at Caterpillar Inc. All three once attended ICC.

The next ICC Board of Trustees meeting is scheduled for May 18 at 3 pm, on the ICC East Peoria Campus.
