Bob Hammon, Vice Chair of the Kishwaukee College Board of Trustees, has received the distinction of Lifetime Membership with the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT). Bob Hammon has served on the Kish College Board of Trustees since 2011 and is currently in his second term. “Bob has contributed greatly to the College during his tenure. He is deserving of this honor,” said Bob Johnson, Chair of the College Board of Trustees.
ACCT is an advocacy group for community college governing boards at nearly 1,200 community and technical colleges across the country. “ACCT provides outstanding staff development programs, training, and up to the minute information on national legislation. All of this helps trustees to conduct themselves ethically and appropriately and to have the latest information to function as a successful trustee of the board,” said Hammon.
The distinction of Lifetime Membership provides an opportunity for colleges to honor outstanding board members and pay tribute to trustee contributions to their college. “By becoming a lifetime member of ACCT, in a small way, I have the opportunity to recognize other trustees who dedicate themselves and show appreciation for their service, knowledge, and experience to the community college mission at the state and national level,” said Hammon.
Hammon has served as an active, involved trustee through the process of developing a new College mission and vision. He also completed a special Illinois Community College Trustee Association Trustee Leadership Training course in June of 2017. Hammon has lived in the area for more than three decades; worked for the Sycamore school systems for 21 years; and served as superintendent for Sycamore school district for 13 years.
