ICCTA Professional Board Staff Member Award
Illinois Valley Community College
As Illinois Valley Community College's board secretary and executive assistant to the president, Jeanne Hayden
is known as the campus "go-to" person for solving problems and promoting a positive work environment.
Working behind the scenes to facilitate the board's operations, she is as comfortable recording board minutes via shorthand as she
is posting them online.
Hayden first began at IVCC as a student worker in the counseling division. After graduating with honors in 1972, she was
hired as secretary to the dean of admissions.

Jeanne Hayden accepts ICCTA's Professional Board
Staff Member Award from ICCTA vice president Reggie Coleman.
Since then, she has taken on numerous support roles –
including driving the college float in summer parades and typing the entire college catalog on a Composer Typewriter.
In 1996, she was appointed to her current position and is now in the process of training her fifth college president.
Twice honored with recognition awards by IVCC, Hayden received the 2005 Central Region Professional Board Staff Member
Award from the Association of Community College Trustees.
"The ICCTA's new Professional Board Staff Member Award was designed for individuals like Jeanne Hayden,"
says IVCC board chair Dennis Thompson. "Her professionalism and humble service extend to everyone in the college and community."
