LANSING, Mich. – The LCC Board of Trustees unanimously elected new officers at its regular meeting on Jan. 25. The newest slate of officers elected from the seven-member body are:
- Trustee Ryan Buck as Chairperson
- Trustee Angela Mathews as Vice Chairperson
- Trustee Robert Proctor as Treasurer
- Trustee Lawrence Hidalgo Jr. as Secretary
In the November general election, LaShunda Thomas won the open Trustee seat and Trustee Andrew Abood was reelected to the seat he has held since 2015. Trustees Thomas and Abood took their oaths of office also at the Jan. 25 meeting. Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Wanda M. Stokes administered their oaths of office.
“Lansing Community College is an engine of positive change,” stated Chairperson Buck. “Of special note is the Board’s June 2020 Resolution Addressing Racial Injustice through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This resolution is but one demonstration of the Board’s commitment to student success.”
Unanimously approved by the Board of Trustees, the resolution was spearheaded by Buck and Mathews. Fundamental to the resolution was the formation and implementation of an Equity Action Plan that commits LCC to ensuring equity in law enforcement procedures, policies and behaviors, and to embedding diversity, equity and inclusion training into student and employment processes.
“I want to thank our outgoing Chairperson, Trustee Lawrence Hidalgo Jr., for his solid leadership during the past two years,” stated Buck. “The college is in a better position to serve students because of his service.”
