Gateway Board Elects Officers

The board of directors of Gateway Community and Technical College elected officers at its annual meeting Nov. 20. The officers will serve until the next annual meeting in November 2015.

New officers include Jeffrey Groob of Covington, chair; Kenneth R. Paul of Fort Thomas, vice chair; and Julie Ann Smith-Morrow of Newport, secretary. Paul Whalen of Fort Thomas was appointed parliamentarian by the chair.

Groob and Paul were elected to temporary roles in the same positions at a board meeting in June shortly after the current board members were appointed by Governor Steve Beshear to fill the seats of former members whose terms had expired.

Other community members of the board include Joseph H. Creaghead of Fort Mitchell, Chad L. Day of Covington, and Iversy Velez of Florence. Amber Decker of Erlanger serves as staff representative; Michelle Deeley Wilhite of Florence is the faculty representative, and DaShawntae Durham represents students on the board.
