BLOOMINGTON – Ivy Tech Community College’s Bloomington campus welcomes Orange County Community Foundation’s executive director, Imojean Dedrick, to its Campus Board of Trustees. The Ivy Tech State Board of Trustees approved Dedrick’s nomination effective August 2, 2018 through June 30, 2021.

“Ivy Tech Bloomington began serving Orange County in 2006, and officially in 2017 through the College’s restructure project, focused on better serving students and the state’s workforce needs by aligning with communities at the campus level,” said Chancellor Jennie Vaughan. “With that change, it became important for us to add a representative of Orange County to the Board, and we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Imojean.”

Dedrick has served the Orange County Community Foundation since 2004. Before that, she was owner and general operator of local radio stations, WUME-FM and WSEZ-AM, since 1993. Some of her past and present affiliations and memberships include the Paoli Public Library, Orange County Youth Council, Orange County Good Samaritan Committee, Orange County Women’s Giving Circle, Orange County Indiana State Bicentennial, and Paoli Chamber of Commerce. In 2017, she was a recipient of the Indiana Distinguished Hoosier Award.
