Creston, IA-- Southwestern Community College’s board of directors met in regular session on Tuesday, February 10, 2009, at 5:30 p.m. in the Administration Center on SWCC’s campus.
During the meeting, the SWCC board approved the appointment of Tony Cass of Creston to fill the college’s open District 8 board member position. A committee had been established at the January board meeting for the purpose of interviewing candidates to fill the open position. Cass is the assistant director of pharmacy services at Greater Regional Medical Center in Creston. He was a student at Southwestern from 1975-77. He will serve in this position until the next regular school board election in September. This position was vacated in December with the resignation of Larry Mark, who had been a long-time board member for the college.
A team of five SWCC business systems networking students placed third over the weekend in the Community College Cyber Defense Competition held at Iowa State University in Ames.
Team members included (L to R): Elliot VeVerka, sophomore from Montezuma; Zach Feldhacker, sophomore from Creston; Joshua Bix, freshman from Hopkins, MO; Ray Chenoweth, sophomore from Afton; and Evan Musfeldt, freshman from Lacona.
