SPRINGFIELD – Lincoln Land Community College’s new student trustee was sworn into office at the May 25, 2022 meeting of the LLCC Board of Trustees.
Giles Harris-Patel of Springfield, a second-year student majoring in English, will represent students on the LLCC Board of Trustees through April of 2023.
Harris-Patel will serve alongside the seven elected trustees who represent residents of the college district and set policy to ensure LLCC is meeting their educational needs.
