ICCTA Ray Hartstein
Trustee Achievement Award
Spoon River College
Legislative advocacy is Dave Maguire's strength and passion. As ICCTA
president (1999-2000) and two-time State Relations Committee
chair, he guided the association's strategy on such controversial
issues as adult education governance, equitable funding, and local
autonomy. He continues to be a constant and visible figure at the
State Capitol, lobbying on behalf of the community college agenda.
Building successful partnerships has been another trademark of
Maguire's eight years as a trustee. At the local level, he was
instrumental in the development of a residential housing agreement
between Spoon River College and Western Illinois University, the
first of its kind in the state.
