CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - A member of the University of Illinois board of trustees who led the school through two presidential searches says she won’t seek reappointment after her term ends next month.

Pam Strobel tells The (Champaign) News-Gazette (https://bit.ly/16tkQ2r ) in a Wednesday story that she has informed University of Illinois President Bob Easter of her decision. Strobel has served since Gov. Pat Quinn appointed her when the university board was reconstituted in 2009 after an admissions scandal.

She is a Democrat from Winnetka and a retired business executive who earned degrees from the university in journalism and law. Strobel says she thinks it’s “very helpful to get fresh perspectives and new thinking on the board.”

Board Chairman Christopher Kennedy has also said he plans to step down when his term ends in January.
