Title

Presidents, 1966-1977, Dr. Selby Ballantyne

Description

The first order of business for the new board of Area Ten Community College was to hire it's first superintendent. On June 10, 1966 Dr. Selby Ballantyne, Iowa native and superintendent of schools at Bettendorf, Iowa, was hired. The new board and president then proceeded to work on their goal to create "one of the best vocational-technical schools in the country".

While on a business trip to the ACCTion national conference in Colorado, Dr. Ballantyne died of a heart attack on November 18, 1977. Founding Board of Trustees Chair Bud Jensen said of him in tribute: "The death of Selby Ballantyne marks the end of an era...Kirkwood Community College will stand forever as a monument to the innovative educational leadership of this truly great man." As another tribute, Kirkwood dedicated Ballantyne Auditorium in 1983.
