Governor appoints Koenig to FKCC board

August 31, 2013 

On Thursday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott appointed Key West attorney Tim Koenig to the Florida Keys Community College Board of Trustees replacing board Chairman Antoinette Martin.

Scott also reappointed Marathon media consultant Anne O’Bannon to a second four-year term on the community college’s governing body.

Koenig has served as a magistrate for the 16th Judicial Circuit since 2009; he has a bachelor’s and law degree from Florida State University with the term ending May 31, 2017.

Both appointments are subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate.

Scott’s last round of FKCC Board appointments came in April 2012 with reappointment of Key West attorney Edwin Scales III; Brian C. Schmitt, a Marathon-based Realtor, and Robert Stoky, an Upper Keys businessman and restaurant owner.

The Board of Trustees next meet Sept. 23 on the Stock Island campus.

FKCC started the fall semester two weeks ago with full-time equivalent students numbering 329.3, which is more than 6 percent enrollment decrease compared to the same period last year.

The college did report, however, their Lagoon Landing dormitory has 98 out of 100 beds filled.

The college operates centers in Marathon and Tavernier and has an approximately $10 million annual budget.
