For 31 years, Trustee Matyas worked in the Finance Department for Alberto Culver Company, located in Melrose Park.

Trustee Matyas feels it is an honor to be part of this board, working together to move Niles forward, to bring back the spirit in the community and to hear the voice of the people on their issues and concerns.
