Lake Land College Discussing Open Vacancy With Three Candidates

The Lake Land College Board of Trustees will consider three candidates to fill a vacancy on the board at the regular March 11, 2024 meeting.


Candidates who have submitted application materials by the March 1 deadline are: Curtis Garrard, Effingham, Larry Lilly, Mattoon and Scott Wilson, Charleston.


Following the regular business items on the agenda, the board will go into closed session to discuss the selection of a person to fill the board seat vacancy. Following the discussion, the board will return to open session and approve a candidate to fill the board vacancy as discussed in closed session. The individual selected will be seated at the April 8 board meeting.


The vacancy was created in February with the resignation of former trustee Mike Sullivan, Mattoon.

Those interested in filling the vacancy were to submit materials explaining the reason for seeking the appointment, qualifications and experience in other areas which may enhance public policy or decision-making. Eligibility requirements for the trustee vacancy are: U.S. citizenship, 18 years of age or older, a resident of Illinois for one year immediately preceding election, and a resident of Community College District No. 517 for one year immediately preceding election.


The individual selected by the board to fill the vacancy will serve until the next consolidated election in April of 2025.
