On Tuesday, Nov. 8, three College of Western Idaho (CWI) Board of Trustee members were appointed to their post by Ada and Canyon County Voters. Mary Niland and Mark Dunham were each re-elected, while C.A. “Skip” Smyser was elected to his first term on the Board. All three candidates ran unopposed.
CWI is governed by a volunteer five-member Board of Trustees who are elected at large from within Ada and Canyon Counties for staggered, four-year terms. Trustees derive their authority from and hold office in accordance to the state of Idaho Code.
