Corsicana — Community perception of the role Navarro College plays, and how it can better serve Corsicana and Navarro County is the goal of a Town Hall meeting called at the college for Monday, April 21.
The town hall presentation will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Dr. Richard M. Sanchez Library on the Corsicana campus. Refreshments and entertainment by the Navarro College Choir will precede the town hall event beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Navarro College administrators are asking the public to provide feedback to the college on its offerings at the forum in an effort to better address the wants and needs of the community, said Margaret Moreno, public information officer for the college.
Moreno said idea for the town hall meeting came from College District President Dr. Barbara Kavalier.
“She wants to see where we can better use our resources to help the community, and develop a strong partnership with the community,” Moreno said.
After providing updates on many areas of college operations and services, administrators will lead small roundtable discussions about the college.
“We'll ask questions like 'How can we improve the college?' and 'What's your opinion of the college?'” Moreno said, in an effort to get feedback from the community.
“Our biggest focus right now is to be strongly connected to the community in any way possible,” Moreno said. “We think these meetings are going to be a key toward hearing what the community needs and how we can better serve our community.”
Among college personnel who'll join Kavalier in sharing information at the open house are Dr. Harold Housley, vice-president for academic affairs; Gettie Moreno, vice-president of finance and administration services; Dr. Tommy Stringer, vice-president of institutional advancement and Dewayne Gragg, vice-president of enrollment management, student success and institutional studies.
Moreno said the college is also considering similar town hall meetings at its Ellis County and Mexia campuses in the future.
