Dr. Nutt, who received overwhelming support from the LSC-Tomball Faculty Senate, was the unanimous choice of the 20-member President’s Search Advisory Committee.
“The feedback I have received from Dr. Nutt’s interview with the search committee, her meeting with community leaders and the two open faculty and staff forums held at LSC-Tomball, has been nothing but excellent,” said Stephen Head, LSC chancellor. “I would like to thank all who participated and provided input in this very important process.”
