— One of Rock County’s top cops is getting new duty: serving on the Blackhawk Technical College District Board.

Barbara Barrington-Tillman, the chief deputy at the Rock County Sheriff's Office, is one of two people appointed to fill upcoming vacancies in the nine-member board, according to a BTC news release.


BTC provides police training, and having law enforcement on the board is nothing new. Board member Lauri Steeber is a lieutenant with the Wisconsin State Patrol.


The appointments committee—comprising the county board chairmen from Rock and Green Counties—also reappointed real estate agent Victor Gonzalez of Edgerton to the board.


The two were chosen from among seven applicants.


Barrington-Tillman is appointed to a three-year term. She will be one of the two required “employer” members on the board. Gonzalez will serve a one-year term in the “additional member” category.


Gonzalez had served in the employer category but is no longer an employer.


The district board consists of two employer members, two employee members, three additional members, one member who holds a state or local elected office and one school district administrator. Board members serve staggered three-year terms.


Both appointees’ terms begin July 1.
