Gov. Jay Inslee recently reappointed Trustee Mile Wilson, who first began his tenure on the Community Colleges of Spokane Board of Trustees in 2013, to another five-year term. Wilson has worked for several decades in the healthcare industry, including Providence Health Care, where he was the chief executive officer for two years.
In addition to his experience managing hospital networks, Wilson has been active on state and regional boards and committees for more than 25 years. He currently chairs the advisory board for the University of Washington School of Medicine at Gonzaga University and sits on the board of trustees for Kaiser Permanente in Washington.
“Trustee Wilson brings a wealth of business and organizational knowledge to our board,” said CCS Chancellor Christine Johnson. “His career leading the region’s largest health care provider and his role as a respected community leader help position CCS for a strong future.”
Wilson joined CCS after filing an unexpired term before he was appointed by Gov. Inslee to a five-year term in 2014. He was also a member of the CCS Foundation Board of Directors from 2004 to 2008, and served as the community chair for the United Way Campaign in 2014.
Wilson said he is pleased to continue his work on the CCS board.
“The community colleges are vital to the educational needs of our region and serve every segment of our population with affordable, high quality education leading to degrees and certificates which enhance our community and people’s lives,” he said. “Serving on this Board is an opportunity to witness a diverse community achieving success and reaching their full potential. The colleges are quite possibly the most important resource for our region."
