Local Clinton County businessman James Gregory has been appointed by Governor Tom Wolf to serve as a member of Lock Haven University’s Council of Trustees. Gregory officially begins his term of service with this week’s Council of Trustee meeting.
The Governor’s appointment was largely due to Gregory’s lifelong commitment to the betterment of this county as a business owner, citizen, and volunteer. Born in Sparta, Greece, Gregory became a naturalized American citizen after being raised in Huntingdon, PA. Gregory was a member of the United States Military, serving in the Army during the Vietnam era.
The veteran and community advocate has also served as the President of the Lock Haven University Foundation Board, member of Lock Haven Kiwanis, Lock Haven Eagles, and the Lock Haven Revitalization Association which resulted in the Downtown Lock Haven Project. As a business owner, Gregory has been a restaurant owner with both Subway and, currently, Domino’s franchises.
As a Lock Haven Trustee, he along with his colleagues are charged with assisting the president of the institution with annual fiscal, and capital budget requirements. In addition, the trustees are charged with conducting annual physical inspections of facilities, making recommendations regarding maintenance and construction, awarding contracts, and the review and approval of most university fees.
