FREMONT – The Terra State Community College Board of Trustees announced that Gov. John Kasich has appointed Timothy Myers and reappointed Board Chair Kay Reiter and Board Vice Chair Kellie Carte Sears, all of Fremont, to serve on the Board. Myers’ appointment expires December 30, 2020, while Reiter’s and Sears’ reappointments expire December 30, 2024.
Myers currently serves as the General Manager of Century Die Company in Fremont. “I am looking forward to working with the Board to support and strengthen the role that Terra State plays in highly-technical career training that will meet or exceed expectations of our local industries,” he says. “This will, in turn, nurture sustainability and growth in our community, not just for industry, but personal growth as well.”
Reiter commented, “I was very pleased to receive the notice on the appointment of Tim Myers to the Board. I have worked with Mr. Myers previously and I am confident he will be an asset to the Board and the College. I was also very pleased to know that Kellie Sears and I were both reappointed to the Board. While recently the Board has experienced big challenges I am looking forward to a positive time ahead with Mrs. Sears and my other fellow board members.”
Sears had similar thoughts. “I am honored to be reappointed to continue my role on the Board of Trustees. The College’s current trajectory and transformational shift will provide students with new and exciting opportunities, the staff with a new sense of ownership, and our community partners regained confidence. I am excited to remain a part of the process at Terra State.”
Terra State President Dr. Ronald Schumacher shares the same enthusiasm. “We are excited that for the first time in a long while, we are close to having a full Board. The variety of perspectives from the trustees is sure to not only benefit the College but the local workforce.”
