NCTC Regents sworn in

Elizabeth F. Abu | May 22, 2019

Regents of the North Central Texas Community College District met Monday night and regents Erica Sullivan and Christy Morris were sworn in by Judge Chris Cypert.

There was no board election held this month, as the three seats were uncontested. Matt Chalmers and Christy Morris were re-elected for full, six-year terms, through 2025, and Erica Sullivan, who took over after Regent Patsy Wilson resigned in August, claimed the rest of her unexpired term, which will run through 2021. 

NCTC Chancellor Dr. Brent Wallace recognized the NCTC Staff and Faculty who worked the Spring 2019 Commencement ceremony for their hard work. Over 450 students walked the stage on Friday, May 17, to receive their diplomas at the University of North Texas Coliseum.

During the Chancellor’s Administrative Report, Melinda Carroll, Senior Director of Institutional Research and Reporting, gave the board an update on NCTC’s Achieving the Dream initiative. Dr. Wallace also gave the board an update on the current legislative session. Core operation funding will remain the same, but contact hour funding and student success point funding should both see a slight increase.

NCTC Vice Chancellor of Fiscal Affairs Dr. Van Miller presented normal fiscal activity to the board and Vice Chancellor of Administrative Affairs Robbie Baugh gave the board an update on the First State Bank Exchange. The FSB Exchange is still set to open for Fall 2019, with the parking garage construction completed by May 29th. The main building at the FSB Exchange is at 80% completion according to Baugh.

The board approved a bid from Training Camp for Information Technology Certification Training through the TechHire Grant.

Chair Karla Metzler and Regent Matt Chalmers were unable to attend Monday’s meeting and no executive session was called.
