A Luther college alumna could be next to serve on the Winneshiek Medical Center Board of Trustees.
Last week, Judith Grotegut-Robinson, a Waukon native and Luther Class of ’75 graduate, filed papers to run for the Board position being vacated by longtime member Ben Wyatt.
Wyatt served for 14 years, eight of those as Board chair.
Col. Robinson is a retired Medical Services Corps officer who spent 29 years in plans and operations.
“My skill sets are long-term planning and execution of medical systems. My job was to put together medical systems that worked from top to bottom,” she said.
Robinson, who returned to the area in October to retire, said she has been looking for a way to continue to serve in some way.
“My life has been service and when I heard there was an opening, it seemed like a good fit for me,” she said.

Board Members Clark Goltz of Ossian and Rick Burras of Decorah both are seeking re-election. At this time, none of the candidates have any opposition.
The Board consists of a total of seven members, who are elected to rotating, six-year terms and represent different areas of the county.
Deadline to file is tomorrow (Wednesday, Aug. 27).
The general election in Winneshiek County is Tuesday, Nov. 4.
