Arizona Western College District Governing Board member Randy Hartless resigned from his position on the board on May 16th of this year. Hartless began his service representing La Paz County District 1 on January 1, 2009, and served as the Board President in 2012 while simultaneously earning his associate’s degree from AWC.
In his resignation letter Hartless stated, “It is with great regret that I am announcing my resignation, effective immediately, from the Arizona Western College District Governing Board for personal/family reasons. I have served on many boards over the past twenty years and none have been more interesting and engaging than the time I’ve spent serving on the AWC board. Since being elected to the District Governing Board, I have met a lot of truly great people connected with Arizona Western College and I’m sure that many of them will remain lifelong friends. I appreciate that the people of the college district have made me feel very welcome and I thank you for your kindness. I plan to remain engaged in the college community through the Alumni Association as well as the AWC Foundation. I have full faith that the current District Governing Board will lead the college district to great things in the future and I wish everyone well moving forward.”
Hartless has served as the AWC representative to the Arizona Association of District Governing Board and co-chaired the Presidential Search Committee in 2009 and again in 2010.
Dr. Glenn Mayle, president of Arizona Western College, appreciates Hartless’ work representing La Paz County. “Randy Hartless was an excellent board member and I hate to lose him, but I certainly understand family priorities,” Mayle stated.
Dr. Mayle is working with Janice Shelton, La Paz County superintendent, to search for a suitable qualified replacement to fill the unexpired term that runs through December 31, 2014.
