Loesch Retires from College Board
5/16/2014Moberly, MO – Board of Trustee member Rodney Loesch announced his retirement from the Moberly Area Community College Board today. Loesch is relocating permanently outside the MACC taxing district. The Board will make a decision regarding the open seat in the near future.
"It has been a pleasure to work with Rodney during my years on the Board and in the community," said MACC Board of Trustees President James Cooksey. "We appreciate his contribution to the success of the College. His voice and experience will be hard to replace."
Loesch was first elected to the Board of Trustees in April 2000 and was re-elected in 2006 and 2012. He held the office of board president from 2006-2012, and vice president from 2012-2014.
"I am delighted that I have been able to add to the success of the community college movement in Missouri and will continue to champion that cause whether I am a Board of Trustee member or not," said Loesch.
Loesch is a certified financial planner with Waddell & Reed Inc. in Columbia, Missouri. He is a 1966 MACC graduate, a graduate of Truman State University with a bachelor's degree in education, and former president of the MACC Alumni Association.
"Rodney's financial planning background, experience from long tenure on other boards, and knowledge of higher education made him highly effective as a Board member for the College," MACC President Dr. Jeffery Lashley said. "Rodney has shown great commitment and service to MACC with roots that go back over forty years. He has deep insight into how a board should operate and the role of a Trustee. His experience and contributions will be greatly missed and we wish him well."
Along with other community involvement, Loesch has also served on the Moberly Airport Board for more than 30 years. The National Speakers Association named him Chapter Member of the Year in 2008 and again in 2012. He and his wife Shirley have one son, Scott, daughter-in-law Christina, and granddaughter Gabrielle.
