The Rock Valley College Board of Trustees this evening announced the appointment of Don Gillingham to the vacant seat.
The Executive Director of Rockford Lutheran School has spent over 30 years in education, and also previously served as trustee at Triton College, a community college in River Grove, Illinois. Mr. Gillingham is also a member of the Literacy Council.
In his response to the application question “What would be your goals for RVC,” Mr. Gillingham provided the following:
“The overriding goal would be to increase awareness of the many programs offered by RVC that have the potential to enhance an individual’s life and to enrich the region. I also believe that the identification of the proper individual to serve as the leader for the College should be of the highest priority.”
Mr. Gillingham was sworn it at the meeting to fill the unexpired term which will conclude in April 2015.
