Five Candidates Apply for Interim Trustee Appointment

November 03, 2015

The St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees has received five applications for an interim trustee to fill a Subdistrict 1 vacancy.

Subdistrict 1 includes the following school districts: Clayton, Ferguson-Florissant, Hazelwood, Jennings, Ladue, Normandy, Pattonville, Ritenour, Riverview Gardens and University City.

The applicants are: Teresa Huether, former STLCC faculty member and senior project associate; Keith Turner, president, CEO and senior technology consultant of Turngroup Technologies; Monique Abby of the Abby Law Firm, LLC, and prosecutor of the City of Riverview Municipal Court; Lisa Savoy, staff attorney at Maritz Motivation Solutions Inc., and Derek Novel, a retired educator.

The Subdistrict 1 seat became vacant following the resignation of Theodis Brown Sr. on Sept. 27. Brown was in the second year of his six-year term.

On Nov. 19, the five remaining trustees will meet to appoint one person from the five applicants by majority vote to fill the vacancy until the next election, which will be held by the St. Louis Community College District on April 5, 2016. A trustee will then be elected for the remainder of the six-year term, which expires in 2020. At that time, an election will take place to fill the seat for a full six-year term.
 
If no applicant is appointed at the November meeting, the board will continue to accept applications and conduct interviews until the vacancy is filled.
