The day is Monday, November 14 in the year 1983.

Dr. Robert Webb informs BOT of his intent to retire (November 14, 1983): After 12 years as LLC’s 2nd president, Dr. Webb announced his resignation to not only take advantage of the school system’s early retirement program, but also pursue other personal and professional interests, including a run as the Democratic nominee for State Representative in the 106th District. August 31, 1984 was his official date of resignation, but he planned to leave before that by using accumulated sick leave and vacation days, as well as making a smoother transition for the incoming president, who was yet to be named. Before coming to Lake Land, Dr. Webb was superintendent of Shelbyville schools, during which time he served on various citizens committees during the College’s formative years. Presiding over the Illinois community college with the lowest operating tax budget despite successful/unsuccessful referendums attempts, Dr. Webb focused on increasing student enrollment and identifying public services and State grant opportunities.
