At a specially called meeting of the Tarrant County College Board of Trustees this evening, Board President Teresa Ayala issued the following statement:
“Today the attending Board of Trustees decided to commence the formal process of terminating Chancellor Eugene Giovannini’s contract for good cause. We believe this action is in the College’s best long-term interests.
“As this process gets underway, we are confident that the operations of the College are in good hands under the strong, capable leadership of Acting Chancellor Dr. Elva LeBlanc. I want to be completely clear that nothing will distract her or our faculty, staff and students from the outstanding work they are currently doing in their work together each day.
“We pledge to remain keenly focused on further nurturing and advancing the College’s vital mission and values for the benefit of all our community stakeholders.”
