Blinn President Harold Nolte announced yesterday (Tuesday) that Dr. Cynthia Griffith has been named to the new position of Vice-President of Health Services and Technical Workforce Education.
The change was effective immediately.
Dr. Griffith had been the vice-president for instruction and academic programs. An interim vie president for that position will be named shortly.
Blinn College Public Information Officer Rich Bray says President Nolte believes workforce education and health sciences are so critically important to the college that a vice-president was needed to oversee the disciplines.
Dr. Nolte went on to say that the college’s Health Sciences, Technical and Workforce Education divisions are vital to Blinn and the community.
Griffith joined Blinn as vice-president for Allied Health Sciences in May 2013 and was assigned as vice president for instruction in November. She came to Blinn from Lone Star College at Cypress-Fairbanks where she was the dean of public service, health and behavioral sciences.
