St. Clair County Community College board trustee John Adair resigned from his position last Friday in a one-page letter to the college board. In the letter, which was dated September 13, 2019, Adair said the resignation would be effective immediately. Adair noted that the meeting on September 12th marked the 12th anniversary of his first meeting as a member of the Board of Trustees. He spoke of the board’s accomplishments during his tenure which included dual enrollment, Blue Water Middle College, and Career and Technical Middle College. He also talked about expanding facilities and transitioning through three presidents.
In the letter, Adair said his personal life and professional responsibilities have allowed him less and less time to devote attention to his duties and responsibilities as an effective trustee. Board Secretary Mary Hawtin said they are currently accepting applications to fill the vacant seat. For those who want to be considered for the appointment, candidates must be 18 years old and a registered voter living in the SC4 district. The term of the appointment is 15 months and will expire on December 31, 2020. Hawtin said those interested should submit a letter of interest and resume or other supporting documentation to her office at the college.
