Andrew Robitshek chosen to fill NMC Trustee vacancy

TRAVERSE CITY — The Northwestern Michigan College Board of Trustees unanimously appointed Andrew Robitshek of Traverse City to fill a vacant trustee slot on Monday. He will serve through the November 2022 election.

Robitshek, 54, cited his love of the community, business knowledge and past board experience as driving his interest in serving on the board. “Now, as a local business owner of Bay Motor Products, I’ve had the opportunity to encourage many others on my team to enroll in classes at NMC and discover how education can change the trajectory of their life. Nothing is more rewarding than being a part of helping others realize their full potential through education and hard work! I hope to make an even bigger impact by working as part of NMC’s Board of Trustees,” Robitshek said in his application materials.

Trustees thanked all the applicants and noted the high caliber of the applicant pool. Eleven eligible candidates applied to fill the vacancy created by Michael Estes’ resignation October 17, 2021. Per Michigan law, Robitshek will fill the term Estes was elected to in 2016 until the next regular community college election in November 2022.

Release date: NOVEMBER 15, 2021
