Rend Lake College Board of Trustees member resigns

Posted: Updated:

INA, Ill. – A member of the Rend Lake College Board of Trustees stepped down tonight during the board's regular monthly meeting. Eric Black had served on the RLC Board for seven years.

Black was first elected to a four-year term in 2011 and was then re-elected to a six-year term in 2015. During his tenure, he served as the Board Chair for three years, from 2013-2016, and prior to his resignation, he served as the Board Secretary. His vacated seat will be temporarily filled for the remainder of his six-year term.

Black cited his desire to concentrate on his family and business as reasons for his resignation.

"After having served the college for several years now, I can wholeheartedly say it has been a pleasure," he wrote in his resignation letter. "There has been quite a bit of work, some late nights, and some long phone calls, but I have enjoyed the experience. More importantly, I have had the pleasure of getting to know some very fine individuals, both on the board and faculty and staff. What a great team. Thank you and keep up the great work."

RLC President Terry Wilkerson thanked Black for his service to the college.

"I appreciate the support that Eric has provided me as president, both personally and professionally, over the years. His leadership and insight as a board member has been invaluable to the college," said Wilkerson.
