CENTRALIA — Kaskaskia College Board Chairman Bill Hawley has been recognized by the Illinois Community College Trustees Association for his service to KC and the Illinois community college system.
ICCTA Executive Director Mike Monaghan was on hand for Monday’s meeting to recognize Hawley’s 30 years of service and said Hawley has not only represented his college, but also has been involved with the other 272 community college trustees throughout the State of Illinois in setting policy and guiding colleges through the good times and bad.
Monaghan commented that it is not only Hawley’s 30 years of service they were recognizing, but also a stellar body of work during that time, and a commitment to the community college system.
Hawley thanked the ICCTA and Monaghan for their work, noting they lobby hard every day on behalf of community colleges, and will help community colleges in any way they can.
Kaskaskia College President George Evans also recognized Hawley’s service to KC, saying not many people get elected to public boards, but to serve 30 years of exemplary service is unprecedented.
Evans asked people to keep in mind a college trustee is an unpaid position, making Hawley a true civil servant.
