JWCC Trustees say goodbye to Elbe

QUINCY — John Wood Community College Board of Trustees approved the fiscal year 2022 audit of financial records as presented by the firm of WIPFLi, LLP during its meeting Monday night.

“John Wood received another clean audit which informs the College and our community that JWCC is conducting their fiscal business as required and expected,” President Michael Elbe said. “On behalf of the Board of Trustees and myself, we would like to acknowledge appreciation to the entire JWCC Fiscal Services and Business Office team for their continued work to ensure fiscal responsibility.”

It was also the final meeting for Elbe, who is retiring as the college’s president. He spoke with Muddy River News about his departure earlier this month.

Three people filed to run for the Board of Trustees in the April 2023 Consolidated Election. Incumbents Larry Fischer and Robert Rhea filed. Angela Gregor also filed.

JWCC Board Chair Diane Ary did not file to run for re-election.

Registration is underway for Spring classes. Classes start again on January 17, 2023. While the college is closed for winter break (December 22 to January 3), students may begin or continue the admissions process online at http://www.jwcc.edu/apply.
