LSCS Trustees sworn in; board officers elected

(June 9, 2010) – As part of its regular June meeting, the Lone Star College System Board of Trustees swore in its new members and elected board officers for the coming year.

Three board members who were chosen by voters in the May 8 election included: David Vogt, who was the incumbent in the race for Position 5; Bob Wolfe, J.D., CPA, the incumbent in Position 6; and Linda S. Good, J.D., who was elected as the new trustee for Position 7. All three took the oath of office administered at the meeting by Justice David Gaultney, Texas Ninth Court of Appeals.

In addition, the board members selected officers as specified by the LSCS Board policies.

Elected as 2010-2011 LSCS Board chair for the fifth consecutive year is Randy Bates, J.D., who was first elected to the LSCS Board in 1991. Bates served as board vice chair from 1995-1996 and has served as chairman from 2006-2009.

Other 2010-2011 LSCS Board officers include: David Holsey, D.D.S., vice chair; Priscilla Kelly, secretary; and David Vogt, assistant secretary.

“I’m extremely pleased to be able to work with this great body of elected representatives,” said Dr. Richard Carpenter, chancellor. “This is an exciting time for Lone Star College, and we couldn’t ask for a better group of leaders.”

All places on the nine-member LSCS Board are at-large positions and terms are for six years, which are staggered in order to consistently have board members with experience in place. Board members serve as volunteers without pay.
