OGLESBY – David Mallery of Hennepin, a 16-year board member, made his resignation official at Thursday’s Illinois Valley Community College board meeting.

            Mallery, first elected in April 2005, said in his letter of resignation, “It truly has been a pleasure and privilege to be an IVCC board member, IVCC graduate and parent of two students.

            “While I have always intended on serving entire terms, life has altered those intentions. I anxiously await the completion of my Florida home and find it time to recognize that I will soon be unable to legally serve IVCC as an elected board member,” Mallery said.

            “Thank you to the 21 peer board members who shared the board table with me over the many years … and while we may have had disagreements at times, I believe we shared a common passion for our students.”

            IVCC President Jerry Corcoran said Mallery championed construction of the Student Center as chair of the board’s facilities committee.

“You always thought of students first,” Corcoran said.
