Tim Rollins values public education and is passionate about wanting to improve the Rockford Public Schools. That passion stems from having been the beneficiary of twelve years of public schooling while growing up in northern Illinois and from being the father of five children, three of whom have already graduated from the Rockford Public Schools.
Tim has the qualities and commitment to improve the Rockford School District and the community it serves. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois on an ROTC scholarship and then graduated from Harvard Law School with high honors. After serving four years in the Army, he bypassed offers from large east coast law firms and returned to the Midwest to raise his family and begin his law career in Rockford.
He has lived and worked in Rockford for the last 20 years where he assists clients with complex business transactions that require finding creative solutions which meet the needs of often-times competing interests. He also counsels clients regarding employment and labor law issues.
The business, problem-solving and conflict resolution skills Rollins possesses will be a major benefit to the Rockford School District and a testament to the Rockford Register Star’s editorial opinion (12/13/10) that the school board needs a member with a strong legal background.
He has been an active volunteer in our community. He is currently a member of the Dean's Council of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford, on which he serves on the Executive Committee and is a director of Rock Valley College Foundation. Past service includes serving as President of the Board of Discovery Center and as a director of Rockford Area Arts Council.
A strong and vibrant public school system is essential, not only for our children, but for the economic health of our region and its business community. Tim is willing to roll-up his sleeves and commit himself to the betterment of the school district.
