Zimmerman joins Nicolet College Board of Trustees

Ron Zimmerman

Tomahawk resident Ron Zimmerman, center, was recently sworn in as the newest member of the Nicolet College Board of Trustees.

Zimmerman, the human resources manager for the Packaging Corporation of America in Tomahawk, was appointed to fill a recently vacated seat. His term will run until the end of June, 2010.

He's pictured here getting a tour of the college's Welding Lab with Ron Skallerud, right, Nicolet dean of instruction, and Jim Brown, left, the college's vice president of instruction.

A long-time Tomahawk resident, Zimmerman has served on numerous local and regional boards created to strengthen the relationship between businesses and area education institutions.

"In today's world I feel this partnership between business and education will be vital to the success of our young people," Zimmerman wrote in his nomination application. Before joining PCA in 1987, Zimmerman taught math at Tomahawk High School for 17 years.
