Colin Weber is no stranger to leadership positions -- both in the academic and athletic arenas. Now, the Wheeling resident will represent his peers in the board room as Harper College's new Student Trustee.

Weber, who's studying to become a chemical engineer, was sworn into his new position by board of trustees chairman Diane Hill at the regular April meeting. He succeeds Scott Lietzow, who'll graduate in May.

"I've always loved getting involved," Weber said. "I look forward to having an active voice on the board and offering a valuable perspective to the trustees who set school policy."

Weber, 20, is an All-American in two sports. He helped lead the Hawks to their third straight national title in cross country last fall, and he's currently assistant coach for the track and field team. Weber was also inducted into three honor societies including Mu Alpha Theta, of which he's the chapter vice president. He serves as vice president of Student Government's executive branch, sits on Harper's Strategic Planning and Accountability Committee and was a NASA community college aerospace scholar nominee.

Weber also got an early start at Harper, enrolling in dual-credit courses while a senior at Wheeling High School. There he earned a certificate in CompTIA A+, which shows his competency as a computer technician. Nearly 1,900 high school students are taking dual-credit classes this spring.

Weber said his priority as Student Trustee will be to keep the cost of attending Harper affordable for students.
