October 31, 2011

The St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees now is accepting applications for an interim position to fill the Subdistrict 3 vacancy due to the resignation of Joann L. Ordinachev, Ph.D.

Ordinachev, who is serving her third term as the Subdistrict 3 representative on the board, resigned Oct. 28 for personal reasons.

Applications must be sent to Chancellor Myrtle E.B. Dorsey at the Joseph P. Cosand Community College Center, 300 S. Broadway, by 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11. The board is scheduled to review applications Nov. 17. Subdistrict 3, represented by one trustee, includes the southern and southwest portions of St. Louis City and the school districts of Maplewood-Richmond Heights, Affton, Bayless, Hancock, Brentwood and Webster Groves.

Applications must submit a declaration of candidacy that includes the following information:

  • Applicant’s full name, home address and date of birth.
  • The length of time the applicant has resided in the district and subdistrict.
  • A statement that the applicant has been a resident taxpayer of the subdistrict for at least one year.

  • A statement of reason for seeking the appointment.
  • A resume and any other information the applicant believes the current board would find helpful.
  • A statement by the applicant that, if elected, the applicant will qualify for office.

The remaining trustees will appoint one person from the list of applicants by majority vote to fill the vacancy until the next election held by the Junior College District of St. Louis-St. Louis County, scheduled for April 2012. A trustee will be elected for the remainder of the six-year term, which expires in April 2013. At that time, an election will take place to fill the seat for a full six-year term.

If no applicant is appointed, the board will continue to accept applications and conduct interviews until the vacancy is filled.
