NORMAL– Illinois State University's trustees have elected a veteran board member as their new chairman.
Trustees voted Friday to make Rocky Donahue the new chairman. He replaces Michael McCuskey, who retired this month.
According to The Pantagraph in Bloomington, Donahue said the board had long functioned as a team under McCuskey. He said he hopes to continue that kind of partnership.
Donahue is a 1982 graduate of Illinois State. He has been a member of the board for three years.
Donahue lives in Orland Park and is deputy executive director of external relations at the regional transit agency Pace Suburban Bus.
Illinois State's eight-seat board has two vacant positions. University leaders said they hope Gov. Pat Quinn appoints replacements soon.
