Hey again, genius. I didn't say the jail was fine, I asked what was wrong with it. Try being less of a Durbin once in awhile.

Hmm. Where do I record fair market value of a homemade cherry pie exchanged for cleaning out my neighbor's gutters? Duh.

Sure, genius. That piece of paper on wall of the barber shop means it's clean and bug-free. Nope. All it means is they paid their money to the man.

That says nothing about bartering between individuals. It only refers to businesses and to barter exchanges. Better slow your roll.

I don't see anything in that report that says it's unsafe for the deputies Really? At around 4:45 p.m., one of the prisoners attacked a guard with a weapon. ... The guard that was struck was later treated and released from Blessing Hospital. And if you don't think the jail needs to be replaced, I'd strongly recommend you contact Sheriff Fischer's office and…

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

3 weeks, 3 days 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.
