McClure, a 1980 graduate of Wayne Trace High School, and resident of Grover Hill, Ohio, has served as the executive director of the Paulding County Area Foundation for the past seven years. McClure cited the quality of education as the main driver for her wanting to serve the College as a board of trustees member. Her term on the board of trustees runs through June of 2023.

After an executive session, the board gave special recognition to Dr. Tom Stuckey, former NSCC president, and Lynda Cramer, executive administrative assistant to the president. Stuckey and Cramer are retiring from the College after many years of valued service.

In other Board action:

  • Approved 2018-2019 budget
  • Approved miscellaneous employment contracts and resignations
  • Approved a textbook selection policy, allowing faculty to select the textbooks and instructional materials
  • Approved the College’s 2018-2020 completion plan, a state requirement, which targets connection, first-year entry, progress and completion, and workforce. The completion plan is modeled after the Completion by Design Loss and Momentum Framework, a national initiative of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
