Peters takes seat on
Nicolet College Board of Trustees


Crandon School District Administrator Richard Peters, Ph.D., was recently sworn in as the newest member of the Nicolet College Board of Trustees.

Dr. Richard Peters and Gene CarlsonPeters, who has 40 years of experience in education, will serve a three-year term on the board. He started his career as a teacher in West De Pere, Wis., and since that time has held positions of ever increasing levels of responsibility.

Peters has served as district administrator for Crandon schools since 2002. Before that he was principal/deputy administrator for the Lakeland Union High School District for eight years. His resume also includes nine years as the principal of the Menominee Indian Junior/Senior High School.

He completed his doctorate in Educational Policy and Leadership on full scholarship from Marquette University.

Trustees sworn in for another term include Bob Martini, Rhinelander, Gene Carlson, Crandon, and Amy Jacobs, Elcho. Carlson was also elected board president.

Appointments to the Nicolet College Board of Trustees are made by the county board chairmen from Nicolet district counties, which include all of Oneida, Vilas and Forest counties and portions of Lincoln, Langlade and Iron counties.

State guidelines dictate that technical college boards must have employers, employees, a K-12 school superintendent, an elected government or school board member, and at-large members. There must also be a balance of male, female and minority representation on the board. Peters fills the K-12 school administrator seat recently vacated by George Karling.
