Southeast Community College is led by an 11-member board of governors that meets on the third Tuesday of every month.
Two members are elected from each of the board's five districts, and an 11th is elected at-large. Board members serve four-year terms and are not compensated beyond reimbursement for SCC-related expenses.
SCC has three campuses — in Lincoln, Beatrice and Milford — and operates learning centers in communities across 15 counties in Southeast Nebraska. More than 14,000 students enrolled at SCC in vocational training, academic transfer programs or dual credit courses last year.
Two Lincoln incumbents are running unopposed this year: Edward C. Price in District 3 and Kristin E. Yates in District 4. In District 5, Arlyn Uhrmacher is the only candidate for the seat being vacated by Robert Feit.
In District 1, Lynn Schluckebier is not seeking reelection. Chuck Byers of McCool Junction and Jeanne H. Stec of Crete are competing to replace him.
Chad Aldrich of Wahoo is challenging incumbent Kathy Boellstorff of Johnson in District 2.
Incumbent Timothy R. Cerveny of Wilber was appointed in January to fill the at-large seat of Steve Ottmann after he died. Cerveny will be on the ballot with Neal Stenberg of Lincoln.
The races are nonpartisan.
