ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The Rock Valley College Board of Trustees has announced that Dr. Jack Becherer will depart the College effective January 10, 2014.

Michael Mastroianni will serve as the interim president of the College. Mike has been with Rock Valley College since 1998, serving in the roles of director, dean, and most recently as vice president of career and technical education. His recent responsibilities have also included expansion of a variety of programs and partnerships in business and industry.

A lifelong resident of Rockford, Mike has a long tenure with RVC, and been a classroom teacher, mediator, and a member of many community and business boards, including: the Rockford Chamber of Commerce; Family Counseling Services; Fabricators and Manufacturers Association Management Council; Entrepreneurship Center; Rockford Health Council; Rockford Area Ventures; Goodwill Industries, and the Rockford Arts Council.

“The knowledge, history, and reputation that Mike brings not only to the College community, but also to regional partnerships, is invaluable for maintaining our strong momentum,” said Mike Dunn, Jr., RVC Board Chair. “His relationships with faculty and staff, as well as key partners such as Woodward and Chrysler, and experience with prior accreditation visits will have us ideally positioned during this time of transition.”
