Each of the 28 colleges in the Florida College System is operated under the local control of a lay District Board of Trustees composed of citizens who volunteer their time and are legally vested with decision-making authority in all matters of college policy, programs, facilities, budgets, and personnel.

The Governor appoints each member to the board. Five citizens from Lake County and four from Sumter County are appointed to four-year terms to form the District Board of Trustees of Lake-Sumter State College.

This group of dedicated individuals meets regularly to guide the development of Lake-Sumter State College and ensure that it continues to fulfill its mission.
