Hello. My name is Angela Stevenson, though most people simply call me Angie.
I am running for the Board of Trustees at Illinois Valley Community College on April 4, 2017, and I would appreciate your vote!
I was born and raised in Southern Illinois and attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (SIU-C), where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Communication with a concentration in Public Relations and Event Planning. It was there where I met my future husband, Mike Stevenson, a lifelong Ottawan. I moved to Ottawa following graduation from SIU-C and have now lived in the Illinois Valley for 21 years.
For the past 18 years, I have worked alongside my husband and father-in-law as co-owner and operator of Stevenson Transfer, a household and commercial moving and storage company with a distribution warehouse in Ottawa. My husband and I are fourth generation business owners, and have worked hard to uphold the integrity and success of our 100+ year run in the Illinois Valley.
Mike and I are also the proud parents of 17-year-old Jack and 14-year-old Bridget, both students at Ottawa Township High School.
