Lone Star College System Board of Trustee Linda S. Good, J.D., announced she is stepping down as of July 1, 2021. Good, who represented District 7, is moving and will no longer reside in her district which requires her to vacate her office.
“My tenure as trustee has been one of the most rewarding successes in my life,” said Good. “I am grateful for having the opportunity to serve and wish my fellow trustees all the best as they continue to help our students achieve their dreams.”
Good was elected to the LSCS Board of Trustees in May 2010 and served as board chair from 2014 to 2016.
“Lone Star College is fortunate to have had Linda Good serve as a trustee,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC chancellor. “She has been a strong advocate for our students, employees and the community. We worked closely together in my initial years as chancellor to revamp policies and procedures, spent time in Austin and Washington on behalf of Lone Star College and all community colleges, and have always been able to openly discuss issues.”
Good also served as directing attorney for Pro Bono and Disaster Response of Lone Star Legal Aid in Houston since 1994. Good has also been an adjunct faculty member at LSC-North Harris and the University of Houston Law Center and has served as faculty for the NITA Trial Skills for Juvenile & Family Courts in Houston. From 2002 until 2010, Good served on the Paralegal Advisory Committee at LSC-North Harris and is a past chair of that committee and has mentored and supervised student interns from the Paralegal Program.
“I am grateful to Linda Good for her service to the community and her diligence in ensuring the Lone Star College Board of Trustees remained focus on helping our students succeed,” said Myriam Saldívar, LSCS Trustee Chair.
The LSCS Board Policy Manual calls for the remaining trustees to appoint a qualified individual to fill an open position and serve the unexpired term. Any appointed trustee must have continuously resided in Texas for 12 months and must have resided in the district for at least six months before the day of the appointment. Announcements about the process and timetable for applications, recommendations, and letters of interest will begin after the Aug. 5 board meeting.
“I especially appreciated her measured and thoughtful approach on all issues while staying focused on our students and responsibilities to the community,” said Head.
