Teresa Dayrit Gardner and Donald Louis Ortner were appointed to the Lorain County Community College Board of Trustees by Ohio Governor John Kasich. The appointments are for five years.

{mosimage}"I would like to thank Governor Kasich for appointing me to this position, as I feel one of Lorain County’s greatest assets is Lorain County Community College," Ortner said.

Gardner and Ortner replace Lee S. Kolczun and Madeline Torres-Hutlock, whose terms expired August 30, 2012.

Gardner is Director of Development and Marketing for Lorain County Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services, Inc. She is a Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor and a Licensed Social Worker and worked as a clinical dependency counselor before taking on her current role. Gardner was born in the Philippines and moved to the USA in 1978. She has been married to her husband, William, for the past 34 years. The couple has two grown daughters, Megan and Katarina and they live in North Ridgeville.

{mosimage}"I enthusiastically support local education and dream that my children will be able to someday work and live in the county in which they were raised," Gardner said. "LCCC, and its leader, Dr. Roy Church, are a driving force in the region, an incubator of the future and I can assist in transferring that energy into productive county and college growth."

Ortner is the owner of Associated Contractors, Inc., a heavy excavating and site utility construction company. He is the president of the Henrietta Township Zoning Commission and has served on the commission for more than 15 years. He is also a member of the Lorain County Bar Association Ethics Committee. The Ohio Supreme Court appointed him to the committee more than 12 years ago.  Ortner has also served as the president and vice president of the Firelands Board of Education, and was a charter member of the Firelands Schools Endowment. Ortner has been married to his wife, Deborah, for 29 years. The couple’s two sons, Matthew and Joshua, have both attended LCCC. The Ortners live in Oberlin.

"The experience and insight these two appointees bring to the LCCC Board of Trustees will help guide the college in a positive direction," LCCC President Roy A. Church said.
