MMI Governed by New State Board of Trustees
MMI Now Governed by New State Board
At the state level, Marion Military Institute (MMI) had previously been governed by the Alabama State Board of Education. The Alabama Community College System (ACCS), now has its own Board of Trustees, created by the state legislature, to oversee its 25 member institutions. This new Board will have an enhanced focus on the ACCS three-prong mission: academics, adult education and workforce development.
On May 27, Gov. Robert Bentley called the initial meeting of the ACCS Board of Trustees in Montgomery, swearing them in to two-year terms. Board members, appointed by Bentley, ex-officio president, represent each of the state’s seven congressional districts, plus an at-large trustee and an Alabama Board of Education ex-officio member. The Trustees are Al Thompson of Bay Minette, Ron Fantroy of Evergreen, Susan Foy of Alexander City, Frank Caldwell of Jasper, Crystal Brown of Decatur, Milton Davis of Birmingham, Chuck Smith of Demopolis, Blake McAnally of Decatur, and Mary Scott Hunter of Huntsville.
