Letisha Trepac selected as V.P. of Finance and Administration

August 11, 2020

Heartland Community College has named Letisha Trepac for the position of Vice President of Finance and Administration.

Trepac moves to Heartland from Western Illinois University (WIU) where she has served as the Associate Vice President for Budget and Finance.

“I want to thank our search committee for conducting such a thorough review and identifying a strong pool of candidates for this important position,” said Heartland President Keith Cornille. “Letisha comes to us with a depth of experience beyond that of just budget and finance—holding positions in technology services, human resources, and development during her tenure at WIU. We are very fortunate to have her join our team and look forward to her new perspective.”

Having served in a variety of roles at WIU for the past 20 years, Trepac is scheduled to begin at Heartland on August 24, 2020, pending approval from the Board of Trustees on August 18.

"My family and I are excited to join the Heartland community and become residents of the robust Bloomington-Normal region,” said Trepac. “During the search process, I found members of Heartland to be extremely welcoming and passionate about the College's mission and values. I am honored to serve the College and participate in its role of supporting the community and advancing student success."

The vacancy was created by the departure of Vice President of Business Services and Institutional Effectiveness Doug Minter, who left the College at the end of May for a position at Waubonsee Community College. Since the vacancy, Sam Overton has been serving as Interim VP of Finance & Administration. To aid Trepac’s transition, Overton will continue in this position through September.
