Attorney Allan Seidel of Trenton is the new President of the North Central Missouri College Foundation Board of Directors. Seidel was elected at the annual meeting of the Foundation in May.
Seidel replaces Cathy Bailey of Trenton, who has served as the President for the past three years. “The NCMC Foundation supports all the great work being done at NCMC by students, faculty, and staff. When I attended Trenton Junior College (now North Central Missouri College), there were 95 students total, and we were on the third floor of Trenton High School. So I have seen the wonderful change of the college to expand and serve not only Trenton and Grundy County but all of North Missouri,” said Seidel. Elected with Seidel were Trenton residents Scott Wilson as Vice President, Tricia Key as Secretary, Cara Farmer as Treasurer, Jena Eads as Assistant Secretary, and Gary Black as Assistant Treasurer. All were elected for a one-year term of office.
Elected for three-year terms on the Foundation Board of Directors were Gary Black of Trenton, Jeff Crowley of Trenton, Phil Hamilton of Brookfield, and Phyllis Jackson of Trenton. Joining the Foundation Board as new members are Chad Boyd of Trenton, Eric Hauck of Trenton, and Cathy McKay of Trenton; all elected to a three-year term.
