College president, Dr. Hector Gonzales received a one-year contract extension after being evaluated during the executive session at the board of trustees regular meeting on Jan. 21 in Uvalde.
According to board president Rodolfo Flores, Gonzales received an “excellent” evaluation. Trustees voted unanimously to extend the president’s contract.
In other matters, trustees were updated on the current emergency response and security measures plan, which is being implemented across the SWTJC campuses this year.
Derek Sandoval, vice president of the Del Rio campus, updated board members on several safety improvements including surveillance cameras, security guards and purchasing an emergency alert software.
Beginning this year security guards will be on campus during day and night classes in both Del Rio and Eagle Pass.
“The Del Rio and Eagle Pass campuses did not have security and now we do,” said Sandoval. “The other thing we’re looking at is placing security cameras on the Uvalde, Eagle Pass and Del Rio campuses, it’s a good plan and we’re going forward with that.”
President Gonzales weighed in on the safety measures issue during his report to the board, noting he wants to see the college be “proactive as opposed to being reactive” in regards to campus security.
In other business, Margot Mata, vice president of student services reported on spring enrollment.
