Mid Michigan College recently honored two long-time trustees for their years of service upon their retirement, and welcomed two new members to the Board of Trustees.
Betty Mussell served on Mid’s board for 35 years, and Carolyn Bay served the College as a trustee for 20 years. Both are from the Clare-area. Mussell and Bay were honored at a campus gathering in June, and were presented with commendations from Speaker of the House of Representatives Jason Wentworth and State Senator Rick Outman.
“Carolyn and Betty will be greatly missed for their generosity, experience, and working knowledge of Mid,” noted Mid Michigan College President Tim Hood. “We wish them both the best as they pursue their many other interests and enjoy time with family and friends.”
The College welcomed two new trustees to fill Mussell and Bay’s seats.
Mike Jankoviak served Mid Michigan College in various roles over the course of a 25-year career, including Auto Lab Technician, Adjunct Instructor, Director of Library and Media Services, Dean of Liberal Arts, Vice President of Academic Services, and Vice President of Institutional Research. Since 1994, Jankoviak has lived in Gladwin but is originally from Cheboygan. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from Northern Michigan University, as well as a Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy from Michigan State University.
Jane Zdrojewski is an active community member who has volunteered for various organizations over the years including the Beaverton Sports Boosters, Beaverton Youth Recreational Program, Backpack for Kids Project, New Dawn Shelter, and the Clare County and Gladwin County Leadership programs. Most recently, she led the Dow/United Way Gladwin County Flood Relief Distribution Center. She currently serves as an Executive Committee Member and a Past Board President for the United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties. She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Northwood University and is employed at Dow as an Integrated Supply Chain Director.
“We’re grateful to Mike and Jane for generously sharing their time and expertise with the College,” shared Hood. “I’m confident that the next decade will see tremendous innovation and growth for Mid through exceptional Board of Trustee leadership.”
Mid Michigan College is governed by a Board of Trustees elected by citizens who reside in the public-school districts of Beaverton, Clare, Farwell, Gladwin, Harrison, and Mt. Pleasant. The Board acts on behalf of the entire community, and serves as a vital link between the College and community members.
The Board of Trustees generally meets the first Tuesday of every month on the Harrison Campus, unless otherwise posted. A complete list of meeting dates and locations is available at midmich.edu. All meetings are open to the public and allow for public comments at the beginning of each meeting.
