In light of the recent appointment of Flathead Valley Community College Board of Trustees Chair Robert Nystuen of Lakeside to the Montana Board of Regents, the FVCC Board of Trustees elected Shannon Lund of Kalispell to fill the chair position and Mark Holston of Kalispell to serve as secretary, which was previously held by Lund. John Phelps of Whitefish will remain as Board vice chair.


Lund was elected to the Board of Trustees in 2011. A Montana native, she graduated from Montana State University with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology. She and her husband, Tom, and their two daughters have lived in various Montana and Wyoming communities including Miles City, Lewistown, Great Falls, Sidney and Cheyenne before moving to Kalispell in 2005. Lund’s professional career has involved working as a medical technologist, microbiologist, Sidney Health Center Foundation events coordinator, account representative for Xerox and currently, for Beckman’s Fine Furnishings. Lund has been an active volunteer throughout her life and currently serves as FVCC Foundation liaison for the Board of Trustees. She is a former volunteer for Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, has chaired the Intermountain Calling All Angels gala and is an active member of her church.


The college will be issuing an announcement in the near future via press release and legal advertisement containing information on how to apply for the vacant trustee seat previously held by Nystuen. For more information, contact Clerk of the District Monica Settles by calling 756-3801.
