Larry Sitka, right, was recently sworn in as a new member of the Wharton County Junior College Board of Trustees by 329th District Judge Randy Clapp. A Wharton businessman and native Whartonian, Sitka will fulfill the unexpired term of outgoing Position 2 board member Gary Trochta. Trochta – whose term would have expired in May of 2016 – stepped down earlier this year and nominated Sitka as his replacement. The board later approved the selection. A graduate of Sam Houston State University with a degree in accounting, Sitka attended WCJC early in his educational career and said he is “honored” to join the board. He added that he looks forward to helping the college “serve the community in the future.”
