Volunteer needed to fill empty TVCC board seat – deadline looms

ONTARIO – Treasure Valley Community College is seeking someone to fill a vacancy following the resignation of a newly elected board member.

Matt Sorensen, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Western Treasure Valley, was unopposed in his bid for a seat on the TVCC board in the May election. He was elected to the post that had been held by board chairman John Forsyth, who did not seek re-election.

However, days before the election, Sorensen accepted a job in Eugene as the executive director at the Boys & Girls Club of Emerald Valley.

The college board is now seeking candidates to fill the board seat. To be eligible, candidates must be registered voters living in the college district, which includes most of Malheur County, as well as Huntington in Baker County. The district boundaries exclude Ironside, Juntura, Jordan . . .
