Gov. Larry Hogan has appointed two new at-large members of the Harford Community College Board of Trustees, including one whose father previously spent about 15 years on the board.
Hogan also reappointed three sitting members to the nine-member board, the governor's press secretary said Tuesday.
Bel Air attorney Laura L. Henninger and Churchville veterinarian Dr. Richard P. Streett III will fill the respective at-large seats of outgoing board members Bryan Kelly and Bradley Stover, according to Press Secretary Shareese Churchill.
Both will serve five-year terms. The positions are unpaid volunteer roles, Churchill said.
Streett was sworn in at the Harford County Courthouse Friday, according to a news release from HCC. His term will end June 30, 2019.
Henninger, who is also a certified public accountant, is a managing attorney and co-owner of the Henninger & Henninger LLC law firm with her husband Frank. Her term will begin Wednesday and end June 30, 2020.
Streett is the managing partner for the Churchville Veterinary Clinic, which was founded by his father, Richard Streett Jr., in 1971. Two satellite clinics, the Greenbrier Veterinary Clinic in Bel Air and Swan Creek Veterinary Clinic in Havre de Grace, have opened during the past 15 years.
The elder Streett served on the college board from 1980 to 1989 and again from 2004 to 2009. He has also previously served on the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
Hogan re-appointed board members Jan Stinchcomb, Richard Norling and James McCauley.
Stinchcomb, who has been on the board since 2012, represents County Council District B, which includes the Abingdon, Bel Air, Fallston and Joppa areas.
Norling, the board's current vice chair, has served since 2012. He represents northern Harford County in Council District D.
McCauley, who was appointed in 2014, represents Council District F, which covers the Havre de Grace, Aberdeen, Belcamp and Abingdon areas.
Other members of the board are Doris Carey, representing Council District A in the Joppatowne and Edgewood areas; John Haggerty, representing Council District C in the Bel Air area; Cordell Hunter Sr., an at-large member; and James Valdes, the board chair, who represents Council District E, the Aberdeen and Churchville areas.
The at-large board members who are being succeeded, Stover and Kelly, are past chairs and vice chairs of the board.
Stover, who was appointed in 2004, and Kelly, who was appointed in 2005, have served two terms and were term limited, according to Churchill.
