Ball, who also served on the Clark State Foundation Board of Directors, became a certified public accountant and then earned his law degree from The Ohio State University, served in the United States Air Force and was the assistant general counsel at the Reynolds and Reynolds Company.

“David Ball brings a great deal of leadership, financial, and legal expertise to the board,” said President Jo Alice Blondin. “He is a champion of excellence in student services and student learning, and understands the alignment needed between our personnel, facilities, and programs that provide for workforce or transfer.”

Evans, who was reappointed to the board in November 2022, said she was thrilled to be reappointed and looks forward to continuing to serve the college as it is a “shining spot in our community.”
