Kolczun was Chair of the American Bar Association, General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Section in 2004-2005, and recently was elected to the Board of Governors of the American Bar Association.  He has served on a number of boards throughout Northeast Ohio and is currently serving on the Board for the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland Foundation.

Torres-Hutlock is an LCCC graduate having earned an associate’s degree in 1988 and a former Board of Trustees member. She previously served on the board from 1987 to 1992.

She is a retired social worker who worked as a drug and alcohol counselor. She also sat on the Lorain County Public Library Board of Trustees for 14 years, including two as president. She was recently appointed as an at-large member of the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging.

Six of the nine members of the board are appointed by the Lorain County Commissioners and the governor appoints the remaining three.
