Long-time McHenry County College Board Trustee Linda Liddell was selected on a 6-1 vote to replace Chris Jenner as President of the Board.
She replaced Vice-Chairman and Interim Chairman Diane Evertsen, who received the one vote, from Karen Tirio.
MCC replaced former Trustee Chris Jenner with Tom Allen, 62, of Lakewood.
Allen was one of several candidates that lost the election last Spring for two seats on the board.
One went to incumbent Linda Liddell, the other went to former long-term Harvard School District board member and tetired County Board Member Diane Evertsen.
Allen tried again by applying for appointment to replace Chris Jenner after Jenner joined the growing ranks of people who sought a better deal in other states.
Jenner announced the sale of his home, his retirement, and his move to FL. in the December Committee of the Whole meeting.
There was a public posting of the vacancy and a total of 9 applicants were interested. That number was narrowed down to 5 for tonight’s interviewing process.
When the board came out of closed session the vote was unanimous.
