Consent Calendar approved

Faculty and employees who take advantage of Navarro’s educational fringe benefit will now have to commit to stay with the college for one, two or three years after receiving their degree, depending on the degree earned using the fringe benefit. Those earning a bachelor’s degree will have to agree to stay with the college at least one year; a master’s degree will require a two year commitment; and a doctorate requires a three year commitment to remain at Navarro College.

Financial update presented

Gettie Moreno, vice-president of finance and administration, presented trustees with the December 2012 financial update, as well as an annual review of the college’s investment policy and strategy. The college remains in strong financial condition, Moreno said.

Presidential search update given

Dr. James Price reported the college had received 37 applications, and have selected 10 applicants for interviews. Dr. Richard Sanchez will retire in August of this year.

Election agreement approved

Navarro College will contract with the Navarro County Elections Office to conduct board elections in May 2013. Three positions – those of Faith Holt, Dr. James Price, and Todd McGraw – are up for election in 2013. Filing for the election will begin on January 30 and conclude on March 1.

Student athlete changes discussed

Athletic Director Roark Montgomery and Athletic Advisor Debbie Bonner outlined several changes made by the NCAA that impact community college student-athletes. Among the changes is a requirement that student-athletes maintain a full-time status and earn a minimum GPA of 2.5 in order to move to a four-year school and compete. Previously, the GPA requirement was 2.0. Other new rules impact student-athletes who begin at a four-year school, then transfer to a community college and wish to transfer back. Sanchez praised Bonner’s efforts on behalf of student-athletes.
