The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Board of Trustees accepted the resignation of Jo Ann Sharp at its November board meeting, Monday, Nov. 1, 2010.

Sharp, who has been a board member since 1987, said it has been a privilege to be a part of SCCC/ATS history since the beginning. She was on the USD 480 school board in 1967 and was one of the individuals who helped make both the college and the area technical school a reality.

"SCCC/ATS is truly a Kansas treasure,” she said. "Students come from all over the world in pursuit of a better life. Both the college and the technical school have changed through the years by recognizing their strengths and developing them.  Whether you are a paid employee or a volunteer, the challenge is to take what you have and make it better. I have been fortunate to be a part of that continued growth. 
    "I also want to take this opportunity to thank my supportive family, the community, my fellow board members, Dr. Dunn and his staff, all the employees at the college.  SCCC/ATS is truly a part of the lifeblood of this community and I know all of you will seize those challenges and opportunities for growth to keep it on an upward spiral for years to come.  I will miss you all.”

The board presented a plaque to Jo Ann Sharp in honor of her nearly 20 years of service as chair of the Board. The college will publicize the vacancy and appoint a new board member at the December board meeting.
