Two Waubonsee Board of Trustee members to retire

Two members of the Waubonsee Community College Board of Trustees plan to retire at the end of their current terms in April.

Richard “Shorty” Dickson, from Bristol, served on the board from 1972 until 1987 and again from 1989 until present. He currently holds the distinction of being the longest-serving community college trustee in Illinois, along with a colleague from the College of Lake County. A retired insurance executive, Dickson serves as the board’s vice chair.

Richard C. Bodie, M.D., from Aurora, has served on the board since 1998. He was originally appointed to the position when his wife, Janet Bodie, passed away. Mrs. Bodie had served on the college’s board of trustees since 1980. Dr. Bodie ran for election to the position after his initial appointed term. The Bodie family commitment to Waubonsee Community College spans 39 years.

Waubonsee appreciates the dedicated service of Mr. Dickson and Dr. Bodie to the college and to the community.

Both will be formally honored in the spring.
