BOT Elects 2022 Chairman and Vice Chairman

[Garden City, KS] January 12, 2022 -- The Garden City Community College Board of Trustees elected the 2022 Chairman and Vice Chairman during the regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.

Dr. Merilyn Douglass was re-elected to serve as Chairman and Leonard Hitz was elected to serve as Vice-Chairman.  Continuing to serve in their previously held positions are Beth Tedrow as KACCT Representative, Shanda Smith as Designated Endowment Representative, and David Rupp as Economic Development Corporation Representative and Broncbuster Athletic Association Representative.  Additionally, this was the first meeting for Robert "Bob" Larson, the newly elected member of the Board of Trustees.  

The Board approved the purchase of two production printers for the GCCC Print Shop.  The current production printers are at the end of life with high maintenance costs and poor performance.  The Print Shop handles print requests, special design print jobs, and other print requests for the GCCC campus.  The new machinery will allow for additional prints to be produced in-house rather than outsourced.  The $121,670 purchase cost will be included in a new financing package to be brought to the Board this spring.  If the financing agreement is not approved then, the purchase will be expensed to the Capital Outlay fund.

Additionally, the Board heard an accreditation update from Dr. Malone, Vice President, as well as a review of the Nursing program from Patsy Zeller, Director of Nursing.

The next meeting of the Board of Trustees is scheduled for Tuesday, February 15th at 6 p.m. in the Endowment Room at the Beth Tedrow Student Center.
