Town Hall Meetings With WIU President

Western Illinois University

The president of Western Illinois University will hold town halls this week to meet with residents of the Quad Cities and Macomb. President Guiyou Huang, who took over just three months ago, will talk about his plans for the university and answer questions.

Registration closed on Friday afternoon for both.

Huang will meet virtually with people from the Quad Cities Monday from 5 to 6 pm, on Zoom. And hold a similar town hall Tuesday for Macomb and McDonough County residents, also from 5 to 6 pm.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
