With new trustees, BCC has full board
MOUNT HOLLY Burlington County College's board of trustees swore in two new voting members Tuesday, bringing the board to full capacity for the first time in more than a year.
Kevin Brown of Woodland Township and Kate Gibbs of Maple Shade were chosen to fill slots left open by trustees who were elected to public office. Joseph Hyland of Cinnaminson was sworn in as a one-year nonvoting alumni trustee.
The board has 11 voting trustees, along with three nonvoting members: an alumni trustee, a solicitor, and a secretary.
Brown is on the Burlington County Planning Board and is council representative for the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, according to a news release from the college. He has also served on the Woodland Township school board.
Gibbs, who used to head the Burlington County Republican Committee, works on business development for Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative 825.
Hyland was chosen by students in the Class of 2014 to serve a one-year term as alumni trustee. He graduated last spring with an associate's degree in liberal arts and sciences, and will attend Montclair State University as a psychology student this fall.
The appointments of Gibbs and Brown bring the board to capacity for the first time since May 2013. They fill two seats left behind by Joseph R. Malone III, who became mayor of Bordentown and left in May 2013, and Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, who was elected to the Assembly and left in December 2013. - Inquirer Staff
