Members of the Linn-Benton Community College Board of Education welcomed a familiar face back to the board on Wednesday.
Randy Camp, who joined the board in May 2016 to fill out the remainder of Lyn Riverstone's term, has been tapped once again to serve.
Camp succeeds Michael Duncan, who was elected to the board this past May to represent Zone 6-7. Duncan submitted his resignation in August, citing personal reasons.
Camp will serve the two years remaining in Duncan's term and is eligible to be elected to the position in May 2019.
Board members debated how best to fill the slot following Duncan's departure and decided to go first to the person who received the second-highest number of votes in the election Duncan won. That was Camp, who was the only other person running.
Had Camp chosen not to serve, the board would have appointed a successor, Chairman Jim Merryman said.
Camp, 63, lives in Corvallis. He is general manager of CoEnergy Propane.
During the election, Camp said his first priority is to build and sustain more connections between the community college and local businesses. He said making sure tuition remains affordable is another priority.
"It's good to be back, I guess," he joked to board members at Wednesday's meeting. "We'll find out."
