Senate confirms one, reconfirms three to Community College System board of trustees

Then-Majority Leader Greg Reed presides over the Alabama Senate in 2018.

The Alabama Senate confirmed one new member and reconfirmed three returning members to the Alabama Community College System Board of Trustees on Tuesday upon appointment by Gov. Kay Ivey.

The new confirmed member is businessman and Vietnam veteran John Mitchell. He will be representing District 2 for a four-year term, replacing Ron Fantroy who served from 2015 to this year.

“It is an honor and privilege to represent such a forward-moving body of leadership, faculty and staff members who believe in what they do each and every day for Alabama,” Mitchell said.

Returning board members Milton Davis of District 6, Member-at-Large Blake McAnally and Matthew Woods of District 4 were re-confirmed.

“With a combined 13 decades of experience in business and industry, these board members understand the importance of high quality, affordable education and training to Alabama’s economy,” said Jimmy Baker, chancellor of the Alabama Community.
