Having been a businessman in Lorain County for many years, Goodman said he was acutely aware of the role LCCC plays in the community.

“When you look at the institutions and organizations in Lorain County that make a difference, LCCC is certainly one of those at the top of the list. It’s a place that helps improve the environment of our community and I am honored to be appointed to the board,” Goodman said.

As a businessman in Lorain, Goodman said higher education will help bring Lorain County out of its economic doldrums.

“The college plays a vital role in the educational pathway of those just coming out of high school as well as those seeking retraining for a career change,” Goodman said. “By having an educated workforce we can respond more quickly to the needs of business and industry.”

Goodman, 56, is a retired vice president and general manager of Goodman Beverage Company, a wholesale beer and wine distributor that was owned by the Goodman family for 75 years before it was sold in October of 2008. He was active in the industry and business for 31 years, serving on various industry and trade group committees. He is also the father of three college-age daughters: Betsy, Shira and Anna.

He is currently a member of the LCCC Foundation board of trustees, Leadership Lorain County board of trustees and a director on the Cleveland Jewish News board of directors. For 20 years he also served as a board member at Community Health Partners.

He earned a bachelor’s degree from Boston University in 1976, graduating Magna Cum Laude.

“We very happy that Larry Goodman has joined the LCCC Board. His business experience will be a valuable asset to the board,” said LCCC President Dr. Roy A. Church.

Also, retired Judge Joseph Cirigliano was reappointed to the LCCC Board at the April meeting to a five-year term. Judge Cirigliano was first appointed to the LCCC board in 1969 and served until 1981. During that time he was chairman from 1975-1981. He was again appointed to the LCCC board in 1995, reappointed in 2000, 2005 and again most recently this April.  He has served as vice-chairman of the board since 2006.
