Board of Regents Chair Duke Austin Appoints Advisory Committee for LIT Presidential Search
(AUSTIN) – Texas State University System Board of Regents Chairman Duke Austin has appointed an Advisory Search Committee to begin the search for the next president of Lamar Institute of Technology. Committee members, representing a cross-section of the Beaumont and LIT campus communities, are:
Stephen Lee - TSUS Regent (Committee Chair)
Sheila Faske - TSUS Regent and LIT Alumna
Sarah Ridley - Faculty Senate President
Kristina Mendoza - Instructor, Allied Health and Sciences
Tiffany Williams-Parker - Chair, Department of Technology
Ken Mason - Associate Dean of Instruction
Angela Clark - Manager of Online Learning and Staff Senate President
Kennedy Montaque - Student Government Association President
Rod Carroll - Vidor Police Chief and President of LIT Foundation Board
Nakisha Burns - Public and Government Affairs Manager, Exxon Mobil
The advisory committee will work with AGB Search, an executive search firm, to conduct a national search with the goal of identifying a small number of highly qualified candidates. These candidates will be invited to interview with Chancellor Brian McCall, and the sole finalist will be named by the chancellor and recommended for confirmation by the TSUS Board of Regents as early as July 2022.
LIT President Lonnie Howard announced last month that he will step down from his position in July 2022.
