Northern Pennsylvania Regional College’s dedicated Board of Trustees come together monthly to work toward advancing the mission and vision of the College. Following the January meeting of the Board of Trustees, NPRC announces the appointment of two new board members to begin their terms in 2022. The new trustees will replace trustees whose terms have expired or who have otherwise resigned their seat. Appointed Trustees serve three-year terms.

Joining the Board of Trustees is Mr. Jamie Evens, Port Allegany, PA, and Dr. Kimberly Rees, Austin, PA.

Mr. Jamie Evens is the regional director of hospitality and operations for UPMC’s North Central Region. He has responsibility for Environmental Services, Food and Nutrition, Call Center, Valet, and Safety and Security. Prior to moving into his current role in 2019, he was the Director of Human Resources at UPMC Cole, joining the organization in 2008. Evens has served on several regional boards of directors and work committees, including the Northwest PA AHEC, the North Central Workforce Development/Workforce Solutions board, the Hospital Council of WPA, and the Potter County Education Council.

Dr. Kimberly Rees is the superintendent of the Austin Area School District and has been serving Potter County in the field of education for 27 years. In 2016, Rees became the executive director of the Potter County Education Council, allowing her to work closely with the Educational Consortium of the Upper Allegheny (ECUA), including serving on their Board. She is very dedicated to helping Potter County residents access resources in the area.

NPRC board Chairperson, Mrs. Kate Brock, St. Marys, PA, remarks, “Each year brings some transition to our board and we continue to see great local talent and interest in serving our mission.” Brock continues, “We look forward to welcoming our new board members who will bring additional community connections and perspectives to the institution we serve.”
