CHICAGO HEIGHTS, IL – February 28, 2013 – Prairie State College Trustee Wendell Mosby is now the newly appointed Illinois State Director for The Young Elected Officials Network (YEO).

“We are very excited to have Wendell on board as our Illinois State Director,” said Alyssa Hernandez Board Member for Rich Township School District 227 and Mosby’s YEO sponsor.  “He has proven himself a leader countless times and I know that he will do an outstanding job,” she continued.
