Bubble buster here - your 1st amendment rights do not apply to the comment section of a privately owned news web site. You can't tell "fire" in a movie theater and cry 1st amendment either.

Hopefully IDPH will be able to get a handle on this situation very quickly; the only hint of a silver lining to this story is that Legionnaire's is not an infection that can be easily spread via direct contact between one person and another. Infection control (especially when it comes to something as dangerous and potentially life-threatening as respiratory illnesses among an elderly population)…

Uhhh, TOL... I kinda hate to break this to you, but none of your rights are being violated in any way. First off, your comment looks like it was approved (I can see it; everyone else on the site can probably see it too). Your First Amendment rights have literally nothing at all to do with whether a privately-owned website (such as this one) allows you to post comments on their site. The Quincy Journal…

JWCC Extends Contract with Schachtsiek to Serve as Interim Vice President for Instruction

1 year, 1 month ago from JWCC

Originally hiredto serve during the JWCC’s presidential transition from Dr. John Letts to Mike Elbe

John Wood Community College recently extended a contract with Dr. David Schachtsiek to serve as interim vice president for instruction. 

Schachtsiek joined JWCC following the departure of Dr. Ron Davis, who became vice president for academic affairs and student services at Nashville State Community College.   

As part of a contract with Registry of College & University Presidents, Schachtsiek was originally hired in January 2014 to serve for six months in the vice president role during the JWCC’s presidential transition from Dr. John Letts to Mike Elbe.  The JWCC Board of Trustees recently approved extending Schachtsiek’s contract up to June 2015 if needed. 

“I am pleased the board approved my recommendation to extend Dr. Schachtsiek’s contract with the College,” JWCC President Mike Elbe said.  “In his short time here, he has developed positive relationships with our faculty and proven to be a valuable member of our leadership team. He has graciously agreed to continue his service as we search for a permanent vice president for instruction.” 

JWCC initiated a search for a new vice president for instruction in April.  Elbe has chosen to extend the search and application period through the fall to deepen the pool of qualified candidates. 

“We had several solid candidates, but the fact that the search began so late in the academic year may have limited our options,” Elbe said.  “Extending Dr. Schachtsiek’s contract allows us to conduct a nationwide search at the optimal time of year to find the best possible professional to lead academic instruction and support our administrative team.  It’s a crucial role and we need to get it right.” 

Schachtsiek brings more than 25 years of educational background in two-year and four-year public and private academic institutions to JWCC.  In the last four years he has served in interim vice president for academic affairs positions for Southeastern Community College (2012-2013) and Hawkeye Community College (2010-2011) in Iowa. 

Prior to his contract work with the Registry of College and University Presidents, Schachtsiek served in academic leadership roles including vice president for academic affairs, dean of the School of Professional Studies and senior vice president for Quincy University from 2002 to 2009. Schachtsiek also served as QU’s interim president (2007-2008). From 1995 to 2001 Schachtsiek served as dean of district education services for Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC).  He previously served as LLCC’s director of college correctional programs from 1990-1995. 

In addition to administrative roles in higher education, Schachtsiek served as an adjunct professor in education administration and leadership for Quincy University and was an instructor in social justice for University of Illinois in Springfield. He also taught at LLCC, in its Division of Business & Public Service. 

Schachtsiek holds a Ph.D. in higher education administration from Southern Illinois University, a master’s degree in social justice from the University of Illinois and a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Quincy University.
