GLEN ELLYN – College of DuPage's coordinator of specialized testing has been elected to serve on the National College Testing Association Governing Council, the school announced in a news release.

Wheaton resident Jarret Dyer, who also serves as the Chief GED Examiner for DuPage County, was selected earlier this month for the 17-member council.

“Being nominated and elected to serve in this prestigious national organization is truly an honor. I look forward to the opportunity to participate in developing policy and procedures in this new role,” Dyer said in the release.

Dyer has worked at College of DuPage since 2004. He received a bachelors degree in 2001 from Messiah College in Pennsylvania and a master of business administration in 2009 from Northern Illinois University.

The National College Testing Association is a nonprofit of testing professionals organized in 2000 through the merging of several regional associations. It has at least 2,000 members at more than 600 higher education institutions and 40 corporations and certification agencies in the United States and Canada.
