In celebration of Iowa School Board Recognition Month, Northeast Iowa Community College (NICC) is recognizing Trustee Jim Anderson of Decorah for his dedicated service.
Anderson has served the college as a Trustee since 1999 and currently serves as board vice president.
Anderson, retired attorney and director of estate and gift planning at Luther College, presently serves part-time as philanthropic advisor for the Winneshiek County Community Foundation and Fayette County Community Foundation. He is an active member of the Iowa State Bar Association and Winneshiek County Bar Association. In addition, Anderson serves on the Howard County Enterprise Zone Commission and is an Iowa master gardener.
Anderson believes NICC serves a critical role for communities throughout Northeast Iowa.
“NICC provides the type of education and training that people and businesses need and want. Whether an individual’s goal is to earn an AA degree, transfer on for a four-year degree, take a continuing education course or enroll in a customized training program to improve their work skills, NICC is always there to meet his/her needs,” said Anderson.
Volunteer school board members serve thousands of hours each year working to ensure every Iowa student receives a solid education. Each May, Iowa celebrates School Board Recognition Month to say thanks to the more than 2000 men and women who govern Iowa's public education system. For more information on leadership at NICC, visit
