North Idaho College trustees granted board chair Mike Waggoner blanket authority to make decisions about litigation on behalf of the college, two days before a hearing where a judge will consider whether to compel the college to turn over an investigative report to NIC President Nick Swayne.
Mike Waggoner, a lifelong resident of the Northwest, announced Thursday that he is running for the Zone 5 seat on the North Idaho College board of trustees.
Waggoner was born in the Treasure Valley to the family of a small businessman. His mother’s family came to Idaho in 1907 as homesteaders and his father’s family were general contractors building homes, according to a news release announcing his candidacy. His family still runs their Nampa area farm, which was started in 1920.
