Joe Hudson Resigns from TCC Board of Trustees

FORT WORTH, Texas (Sep. 8, 2011)

The Tarrant County College Board of Trustees today announced that Joe Hudson has resigned from the seven-member board, effective immediately.

Hudson, a business analyst who lives in Bedford, was elected to the board in 2008 to a six-year term. He served one year as president of the board and represented District 2, which covers Richland Hills, parts of Hurst and Euless, Bedford, Grapevine, Colleyville, Southlake and Westlake.

“I am pleased that I was able to be instrumental in making the proceedings of the board more available to the public and for making the whole process more open and transparent,” Hudson said. “I have enjoyed serving the people of my district, but I am in the process of selling my home and likely will be moving out of the area to pursue other interests.”

Board President Bill Greenhill said the board’s governance committee will meet to determine a plan of succession for Hudson’s position. Once the plan is developed, Greenhill said, it will be posted on the TCC website,  Residents of District 2 will be kept abreast of the process to fill the remainder of Hudson’s term, which expires in 2014.

“I am proud to have served with Joe for the past year on the board, and I really appreciated his leadership as president,” Greenhill said. “He will be sorely missed.”

“In addition to being politically astute, his experience as an adjunct professor at another community college was very valuable to us when he joined the TCC Board of Trustees. He didn’t just attend board meetings; he devoted many hours working with us at the local, state and national level to help strengthen the work of Tarrant County College in particular and community colleges in general,” TCC Chancellor Erma Johnson Hadley said of Hudson’s tenure. “He was deeply involved with the Association of Community College Trustees, a national organization, and was appointed to one the committees of the association.”
