Alumni elect Mattingly to join Illinois College Board of Trustees


Bill Mattingly ’75 of Oregon, Ill., a 35-year veteran of education, has been chosen by fellow alumni to a five-year term on the Illinois College Board of Trustees.

Mattingly, now retired, spent the majority of his years as a school superintendent in four districts – most recently in the Oregon School District. All four districts under his leadership realized notable improvements in financial stability, student discipline, academic performance, graduation and attendance rates, and a reduction in truancy. He played a key role in the six-district consolidation of Bureau Valley Schools, the construction/renovation of a $35 million high school in Streator and a $5 million middle school addition for the Oregon School District.

After completion of a term on the Illinois College Alumni Association, Mattingly was appointed as a special consultant during the acquisition of the Alumni House. He is active as an interim school superintendent, recently finishing stints in Bushnell and Rushville. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in history from IC, a master’s in education administration from the University of Illinois Springfield, and a doctorate in curriculum and supervision from Northern Illinois University. Mattingly is a member of the IC Varsity Club, and he enjoys returning to the Hilltop annually to speak to students about leadership.

The newly elected Alumni Association Board of Directors will serve five-year terms on the board and include Jane Jondro Brownback ’72 of Ashland, Ill., Rick Daniel ’85 of Freeburg, Ill., Charlene Childers Kornoski-DuVall ’70 of West Chicago, Ill., Dan Layzell ’85 of Baton Rouge, La., and Marge Ewert Puck ’65 of Meredosia.

Brownback is a retired educator from Pleasant Plains High School; Daniel is the executive client director of GE Healthcare; Kornoski-DuVall is a retired educator and administrator from West Aurora School District #129; Layzell is vice president of finance and administration at Louisiana State University; and Puck is a homemaker.
