Delta College trustees and administrators paid tribute to long time board member R.Earl Selby, who’s resigning effective June 22 after serving on the panel since 1992. Declining health was a factor behind Selby’s departure. Selby and his wife will soon be moving to California to be closer to their children.
Delta Board Chairman Robert Emrich and President Jean Goodnow both praised Selby Tuesday as a great ambassador for the College. Goodnow noted Selby followed in the footsteps of his father as a member of the Delta board.
A board subcommittee will interview candidates hoping to fill the seat with a final selection expected by July 19.
