do they charge Dish & Direct TV a fee? I thought the cable fee had something to do with them using city property to run their wire. Does phone company pay city also?

I wouldn't be able to give a very educated response to that question, because (having this conversation in work circles) I always understood this franchise agreement to include a fee a cable company would pay to the city of Quincy for sole rights as a cable provider in town. The last couple of years I have learned Adams is the CATV provider at Blessing and many businesses in town, a year ago…

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

5 months, 1 week 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.
