The Ohlone College Board of Trustees appointed a new member to fill an empty spot vacated by the retirement of former trustee Nick Nardolillo on October 30. The new trustee is Ann Crosbie, a resident of Fremont since 1996, who is very involved with education and volunteer organizations in the community. She has served as a board member for the Fremont Education Foundation, Music for Minors II, and StarStruck Theatre, and as the Education Committee Chair for the League of Women Voters, Fremont, Newark and Union City.
Crosbie describes herself as the daughter of educators and an education advocate, locally and at the state level, having donated her time on several local education committees in Fremont. She is the parent of four school age children, including one who has just completed a semester at Ohlone. Crosbie is currently working on her teaching credential in secondary education and her master's degree in teaching. She works part time as a substitute teacher in the Fremont schools.
The Board advertised for applicants to the position and received 14 applications. Three of the applicants dropped out, so eleven candidates were interviewed at the meeting. After three rounds of balloting, Crosbie emerged as the choice for the new interim trustee. She will hold this position until the elections in November 2012 where the position will be opened to the voters to decide.
Crosbie joins the seven-member Board of Trustees of the Ohlone Community College District. The Board meets on the second Wednesday of the month with additional workshops as needed. The yearly calendar, agendas, and archived minutes of the meetings are available on the Board's web page at www.ohlone.edu/board.
