8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Steigelman set to retire as JWCC vice president

2 years, 5 months ago by Bob Gough

 

John Wood Community College’s vice president of finance said farewell to the Board of Trustees Wednesday night.

Alan Steigelman will retire June 30 following 15 years of service to the College. The search for his replacement is underway and a new VP of finance should be in place in July.

During his report, Steigelman expressed appreciation for the JWCC staff, faculty and board. He has been responsible for JWCC’s business, information technology, physical plant, campus safety and security, bookstore and cafeteria operations. 

During his tenure, Steigelman coordinated the facilities development and funding for JWCC’s Quincy campus at 48th and Harrison and Workforce Development Center at 4220 Kochs Lane. 

Trustees voted to phase out the landscape and turf management program based on low enrollment. Accommodations will be made to ensure that currently enrolled students who have specified that they are seeking a degree or certificate will be able to complete their program.

Preparations for the 2013 budget are still underway and a tentative budget is slated to be presented to the Board in June.  The Board is scheduled to vote on the budget in July.

Trustees also formally acknowledged JWCC Student Government Association officers for 2012-2013.  They are as follows: Bryce Moore of Quincy, president; Morgan Roberts of Quincy, vice president; Lindsay Hall of Liberty, secretary; and Kelsey Busen of Mt. Sterling, treasurer. 

Board members recognized Meredith Brinkman of Fowler for her service as the 2011-2012 Student Trustee. Brinkman and Bradley Craigmyle of Quincy were recognized for being among a select group of Illinois community college leaders named to the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society All-Illinois Academic Team.

The Board also accepted $25,810 in grant funding from the Illinois Board of Higher Education for the Illinois Cooperative Work Study Program.  The program provides partial funding for employers who hire JWCC students for internships.
