Blinn College Trustee Stacy Aschenbeck has announced her resignation from the District Board of Trustees.
Aschenbeck is resigning after three years on the board. During her time on the board, she helped launch Blinn’s partnership with the Texas A&M University System, as part of the RELLIS Academic Alliance at the RELLIS Campus.
Also in her time as a trustee. Blinn opened Mill Creek Hall and the Kruse Center at the Brenham Campus, the Walter C. Schwartz Building at the RELLIS Campus in Bryan, and expanded the A.W. Hodde, Jr. Technical Education Center.
Aschenbeck says it was a difficult decision, but it’s one that will allow her to spend more time with her family.
Aschenbeck was elected to represent Precinct 4 in 2015. She says it has been an honor to have played a role in Blinn’s development, and once her family life stabilizes, she would welcome being a board member again.
In addition to teaching full-time at Texas A&M as Director of Public Speaking, she also acts as a 4-H club leader. She says she will continue to work with Blinn Vice Chancellor Karen Buck, to attempt to bring new communications courses to the university.
Blinn College Chancellor Dr. Mary Hensley and Board Chair Charles Moser commended her service on the board, and look forward to her continued partnership with the university.
Blinn trustees will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, in the Brenham Campus Administration Building to begin the process for appointing a new Precinct 4 trustee.
