The Terra State Community College Board of Trustees announced that Governor Mike DeWine has appointed Mircea Handru of Tiffin and Nicholas H. Gerber of Port Clinton to serve on the board of trustees. The Governor reappointed Timothy Myers of Fremont for another term. December 30, 2026 is the date the terms for all three will expire.

Handru is the executive director for the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Seneca, Sandusky and Wyandot Counties. "I am very pleased to have the opportunity to serve on the Terra State Board of Trustees,” he said. “It is an honor to be a public servant to one of the most important public institutions in the northwest Ohio area."  

Gerber, who serves as the vice president of business development for The Ashley Group of Sandusky, Ohio, voiced similar thoughts. “I am excited to join the team and serve Terra State and the local communities. Terra State is such an awesome resource to our community, and I look forward to sharing the message and helping expand the opportunities.”

Myers, who is the general manager of Century Die Company in Fremont, commented, “I am honored to be reappointed to the Terra State Board of Trustees to continue working with the board to support Terra State’s efforts in providing much-needed highly technical career training locally.”

Chair Kay Reiter stated, “I was very pleased to receive the notice on the appointment of Nick Gerber and Mircea Handru to the Board. I am confident that Nick and Mircea will be an asset to the board and the College.  I am also glad that Tim Myers was reappointed to the Terra State Board of Trustees and am looking forward to continuing our work and guidance to improve the College, as well as the new outlook Nick and Mircea bring to the group.”

Terra State president Dr. Ronald Schumacher added, “The addition of Nick and Mircea and the reappointment of Tim Myers not only gives us a full board but also a very eclectic group of critical thinkers.”
