Following a vote of no confidence in Waubonsee Community College President Christine Sobek by the college's Faculty Council last week over COVID-19 measures, the board of trustees has issued a statement of support for Sobek.

The board says it's united in its unequivocal support of Sobek in her efforts to implement federal and state COVID-19 safety measures. The board says Sobek's efforts have led to minimal impact on the college from the ongoing pandemic.

The board says the college has only had eighty cases in nineteen months across 10,000 students and staff. Board President Rebecca Oliver says the process is working.
