Alamance County’s commissioners have appointed Mark Gordon, the president of Alamance Regional Medical Center, to fill a recently-vacated position on the board of trustees for Alamance Community College.
Gordon was one of three “qualified” applicants for this particular appointment, which will serve out the unexpired term of former trustee Craig Thompson, who stepped down from his post in the fall of last year. Gordon’s tenure on the board will theoretically lapse with the expiration of Thompson’s term in June of this year.
Thompson and her fellow commissioners ultimately gave Gordon their unanimous nod over the other two applicants, who were identified as Shannon Peterson and Catherine Smith. Of the three contenders, the hospital’s president was the only one who was physically present on Tuesday night when the commissioners voted on the appointment.
