I am pleased to announce that at the March 17 regular Board Meeting, the Board of Trustees appointed Terry Cottrell to serve until April 2011. Terry was sworn in at the same meeting. As the Director of the University of St. Francis Library and active member of the library profession, Terry brings a unique perspective as both a librarian and a resident.
Over the past week, the Board Development Committee interviewed four candidates for the vacant Trustee position, left by resignation of Rick Martin. In appointing a Trustees, those already on the Board have an opportunity to determine the character of the Board for a set amount of time that they do not have during a regular election. Choosing among the four excellent candidates, the Committee deliberated over the best fit for the Board today. They unanimously agreed to recommend Terry Cottrell to the full Board for the appointment.
