Angelo State University's Presidential Search Committee has a corporate bent. Four members of the committee are businessmen.
Mickey L. Long: Search Committee Chair & President of Westex/WLP Well Service.Two members are academic:
Alvin New: San Angelo Mayor and former CEO of Town & Country Food Stores
John D. Steinmetz: President of Vista Bank in Lubbock
Jorge Velarde: Vice President and CFO of Multi-Chem
Leslie M. Mayrand, Ph.D., RN, CNS: Dean of ASU’s College of Health & Human Services and Professor of Nursing.The remaining two members include:
David J. Tarver, Ed.D: Professor of Curriculum & Instruction in the College of Education at Angelo State and former President of ASU’s Faculty Senate.
As an ex-officio member, TTU law student Suzanne Williams will have input but no vote. That means the four businessmen, if aligned, can recommend ASU's next President to Chancellor Kent Hance. I don't expect any Teresa Sullivans in ASU's future. This committee could ensure they fly a corporate flag.Nancy Neal, RN: Chair of the TTUS Board of Regents’ Academic, Clinical & Student Affairs Committee.Suzanne Williams Taylor: Student regent for the TTUS Board of Regents and ex officio member of the committee.
