Hasara on board as Illinois trustee

Former Springfield Mayor Karen Hasara is one of six new trustees named to the University of Illinois board by Gov. Pat Quinn.

"The thing that means the most is that I’m the first UIS grad to be on the board, and it’s been really exciting to people in Springfield and at UIS," said Hasara.

Do you see yourself as being an advocate for UIS on the board?

"I see my main goal as being a representative of the university system. But certainly I will be an advocate because there is no other person on the board who knows UIS the way I do," said Hasara.

Hasara's comments were featured in a December 21, 2009, edition of the State Journal-Register.
