Northern College recently announced its new Board of Governors Executive Committee.

The new members will serve on the board right through until September 2016.

George Pririe, Rock Foy, Al Spacek and George Kemp have been elected to the board.

Al Spacek currently serves as the president of the Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities and the mayor of Kapuskasing.

Northern says the new board will assist in enrollment and working with administration across the four campuses.

Northern says the board will focus on the enrolment of indigenous students and its current indigenous student population.
