Mayor Misenheimer back on RCCC Board | Schools
KANNAPOLIS - Robert S. Misenheimer, mayor of Kannapolis, has been reappointed to the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Board of Trustees by North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue.
“I feel that Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is a vital part of Rowan and Cabarrus Counties,” said Misenheimer. “I am proud to continue serving the college and our community as a trustee.”
Misenheimer has served as mayor of Kannapolis since 2005 and was elected to five-consecutive terms on the Kannapolis City Council from 1989 to 2005. Misenheimer has served on the college board since 2008. Misenheimer’s term will run through 2016.
He is a retired educator. From 1980 to 1993, he worked as a high school and middle school principal in the Cabarrus County School District. From 1957 to 1980, he served as a teacher, assistant principal and principal in the Kannapolis School District.
Earlier this year, Misenheimer joined the long list of distinguished North Carolinians to receive the Order of the Long Leaf Pine at the Cabarrus County Chamber of Commerce annual meeting.
Rowan-Cabarrus Board of Trustees members are responsible for attending all board meetings and key Rowan-Cabarrus events, in addition to advising on policy issues and participating in trustee education programs.
“Rowan-Cabarrus is fortunate to retain such a distinguished member of our board. I am proud to serve alongside Mayor Misenheimer and know that he will continue to be a valuable asset to the college in ‘building sustainable futures through the power of learning,’” said Carl M. Short, chair of the Rowan-Cabarrus Board of Trustees.
Appointments to the Board of Trustees are liaisons to the pubic of the entire service area and not to the appointing entity. Once appointed, trustees are to carry out their duties as established by the General Statutes of North Carolina and the Board’s Bylaws and Policies. They are to carry out those responsibilities independent of concern for any group, organization, appointing board, or political entity other than the students, citizens of the service area, and the college.
Misenheimer volunteers regularly and serves on multiple boards, including those of the North Carolina Educational Assistance Authority, North East Medical Center Foundation and as a North East Medical Center trustee. He is a member of New Gilead Reformed Church where he has been treasurer for 50 years and has served in various leadership positions including deacon, elder and chair of the church and ministry commission. He has served on the SunTrust Bank board of advisors, the Cabarrus County Economic Development Corp. board, the Cabarrus County Parks and Recreation Commission, and the North Carolina League of Municipalities transportation committee.
He earned a bachelor’s degree from Catawba College, a master’s degree from Appalachian State University, and advanced school administration certification from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has been married for 55 years to the former Bernie Hileman of Kannapolis and has two children and three grandchildren.
