MCC Administrative Rebuilding Continues

Mchenry County College's new Chief Financial Officer/Treasurer pronounced MCC's finances healthy this week, as long as state funding holds out.  According to a release this week MCC's State Funding has declined to only seven percent of its revenue and McHenry resident Larry West plans to lobby so it doesn't fall any further.

West's the college's first permanent Treasurer since Administrative Services VP and Treasurer Ron Ally left nearly two years ago to become Elgin Schools CFO.  His replacement,Frank Zeller only lasted a few months at which point the college split the position in two.  Ex-Blackhawk College CFO Don Wilske stepped in as acting CFO, now replaced by West, but the college still has to find an Administrative Services VP to take over for acting head Vern Manke.

As MCC’s CFO, West is responsible for overseeing all college finances, including budgeting, Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) reporting, accounts payable, accounts receivable, investments, and working cash.

MCC's entire upper tier of administrators has turned over now in the wake of the resignation or ouster of former President Walt Packard almost two years ago.
