Robert J. Feit, who resigned his post on the Southeast Community College Board of Governors last May, on Tuesday was appointed by the Board to fill the unexpired term of Helen Griffin, who resigned her District 5 seat on the BOG last December due to health reasons.

Feit, who moved from Pickrell, which is in District 1, into the area of Lincoln that comprises District 5 last year, will officially be sworn in at the Board's March 15 meeting in Beatrice. Feit's term ends Jan. 4, 2017.

Allan J. Eurek, Donald Fritz and Feit were interviewed separately by the Board during Tuesday's meeting. All three candidates were nominated for consideration, and the 10 Board members discussed each candidate and voted. Feit received the majority of votes.

"Thank you for selecting me to rejoin the Board," Feit said. "I look forward to serving with all of you again."

Prior to last May, Feit had served on SCC's Board of Governors since November 1997, when he was appointed to fill a seat. He successfully ran and was elected to the Board four times.

Feit served as Board chairperson and was a part of several Board teams throughout his time.

Feit was involved in numerous activities in Beatrice. He is retired from the Beatrice Board of Public Works as director of administrative services. He worked for Store Kraft Mfg. as general accounting manager. He also worked for Goodyear Tire as a cost accountant and assembler/COBOL programmer. And he was a partner in F & S Electric.

Feit also got heavily involved in the Association of Community College Trustees. He was ACCT's Western Region chair and served as a Board member and former chair of the Nebraska Community College Association. He received the NCCA's Distinguished Alumni Award and the Distinguished Alumni Award presented by SCC's Beatrice Campus.

Feit's community involvement also has been extensive, including being a member of the Pickrell Village Board, website administrator for the Pickrell Community Players, co-founded the Beatrice Children's Theatre, and was a member of the Pickrell United Methodist Church.

He is a U.S. Navy and Vietnam veteran and is a graduate of Fairbury Junior College and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
