KANNAPOLIS – Robert S. Misenheimer, former mayor of Kannapolis, has been reappointed to the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College board of trustees by North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory.

“Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is a vital part of Rowan and Cabarrus counties,” said Misenheimer. “I am proud to continue serving the college and our community as a trustee.”

Misenheimer served as mayor of Kannapolis from 2005 through 2013, and was elected to five-consecutive terms on the Kannapolis City Council from 1989 to 2005. He is also a retired educator. From 1980 to 1993, he worked as a high school and middle school principal in the Cabarrus County school district. From 1957 to 1980, he served as a teacher, assistant principal and principal in the Kannapolis school district.

“Rowan-Cabarrus is fortunate to retain such a distinguished member of our board. I am proud to serve alongside Bob and know that he will continue to be a valuable asset to the college,” said Carl M. Short, chair of the Rowan-Cabarrus board of trustees.

Misenheimer has served on the college’s board since 2008. His term will run through 2020. He currently serves on the building and grounds, institutional advancement & legislature and personnel committees of the Board.

Misenheimer has always been active in the community. He is a member of New Gilead Reformed Church and has served in various leadership positions including deacon, elder and chair of the church and ministry commission. He has served on the SunTrust Bank board of advisors, the Cabarrus County Economic Development Corp. board, the Cabarrus County Parks and Recreation Commission, the North Carolina League of Municipalities transportation committee and more.

He earned a bachelor’s degree from Catawba College, a master’s degree from Appalachian State University, and advanced school administration certification from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has been married for 59 years to the former Bernie Hileman of Kannapolis and has two children and three grandchildren.

“Rowan-Cabarrus is excited to have Bob reappointed to the board. I know that he will continue to be a valuable asset to the college in its stated mission ‘to build sustainable futures through the power of learning,’” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.

Board of trustees members are liaisons to the college’s entire service area. Once appointed, trustees are responsible for carrying out their duties as established by the general statutes of North Carolina and the board’s bylaws and policies independent of concern for any group, organization, appointing board or political entity other than the students, citizens of the service area and the college.

“Our trustees are accomplished and dedicated. They’ve all been involved extensively in our community, and work well together to help create the future of the college,” said Spalding.
