Former Sandburg Trustee Awarded ICCTA Certificate of Merit


Former longtime Sandburg trustee Bruce Lauerman was honored with the Illinois Community College Trustees Association’s Certificate of Merit at the organization’s awards banquet earlier this month in Chicago.

The Certificate of Merit is presented to persons (usually former trustees or presidents) who have made a significant contribution to the ICCTA, the Illinois community college system or an individual college within the system.

Lauerman was first elected to the Sandburg Board of Trustees in 1990 and retired from his role in November. While a trustee, Lauerman also served as a member of the ICCTA Executive Committee, was an ICCTA regional chair and was a member of the association’s Nominating Committee.

“For nearly four decades, Bruce made it his mission to support students and strengthen our community through his service as a Sandburg trustee. He continues to value and cherish the role higher education can play in a person’s life,” Sandburg President Dr. Seamus Reilly said. “This honor reflects the impact and legacy Bruce has created through his longstanding contributions to Sandburg and the ICCTA.”
