Four new members were inducted into the Oak Crest Board of Trustees by board president Tim Dunlop. New members are Karen Grush, Brian Scholle, the Rev. Joseph Gastiger and Dave Louis.
Grush has served others through various roles in public health, first in Champaign and then in DeKalb County. She recently retired from her role as administrator of the DeKalb County Health Department. Grush will serve on the finance and health care committees.
Scholle is a State Farm Insurance agent whose leadership and participation in a variety of community programs, like Re:New DeKalb, Huskie Athletics, Kishwaukee Kiwanis, the Ben Gordon Foundation and the Barb City Manor Board, make him an excellent addition to the Oak Crest Board of Trustees.
Scholle will sit on the finance and building committees.
Gastiger is the pastor at the First Congregational United Church of Christ in DeKalb. He is a familiar face at Oak Crest, as he conducts worship services each month.
Gastiger will serve on the community relations and health care committees and brings with him years of community experience through his volunteer work as a board member of Elder Care Services, vice president of Safe Passage, a member of the City of DeKalb Human Relations Commission, the DeKalb County FEMA Advisory Board and an active member of the Kishwaukee Kiwanis.
Louis retired after many years as president of Kishwaukee College. He served on the Oak Crest Board years ago. He will sit on the finance and building committees.
