September 2017 Board Report

The December 31 retirement of executive assistant to the President Jeanne Hayden, affiliated with Illinois Valley Community College for more than three decades, was announced by IVCC President Jerry Corcoran at Thursday’s board meeting.

An IVCC graduate, Hayden was selected executive assistant and named secretary to the board when President Jean Goodnow arrived in 1996.
