Gov. JB Pritzker has announced his appointments to the Board of Trustees for Western Illinois University in Macomb and a Maywood resident, and Western alum, is among them.

Kisha Lang, who served as an assistant principal at Proviso East High School from 2011 to 2014, is among seven appointees that Pritzker announced. The appointments still need to be confirmed by the Illinois Senate.

“The new board will focus its efforts on revitalizing WIU’s student recruitment and outreach efforts, focusing investments on core programs, burnishing the university’s reputation and brand throughout the state, and strengthening relationships with its surrounding communities,” according to the statement that Pritzker’s office released on March 28.
