Five out of seven.
That’s the number of women who will be serving on the McHenry County College Board after new members are sworn in.
In last week’s election, two women, Linda Liddel and Cynthia Kisser. took the six-year terms.
Losing was long-time member George Lowe and appointed member Robert DeWitt, who took Scott Summers place.
For the two-year term, a man did win.
Dennis Adams, appointed to fill out Donna Kurtz’ term beat another man, Dave Boger.
But, there are three women who were not up for election this year:
- Carol Larson
- Mary Miller
- Barbara Walters
Ron Parish, elected President of Bull Valley this spring, also occupies a seat on the board.
Student Trustee Cody Sheriff is also male, but his term expires this month and, while he can talk, he can’t vote.
And, of course, Vicky Smith is the new MCC President.
What role do you think gender will have on McHenry County College?
Will new member Linda Liddell get her wish to tape record and archive what is said at McHenry County College Board meetings?
Will Dennis Adams continue to approach college affairs from his businessman’s point of view.
Any thoughts on the future of the college?
