Members of the Weatherford College Board of Trustees unanimously appointed Judy Ray McAnally to fill the seat left vacant after the passing of Don Allen earlier in 2015 during their Thursday afternoon meeting.
McAnally, a Weatherford resident, is the Community and Physician Relations Manager at Texas Health IHC in Willow Park. She previously worked as a Business Relations Specialist at Texas Health Fort Worth and as Population Science Project Coordinator for the Moncrief Cancer Institute.
"We look forward to working with Ms. McAnally on the board and receiving benefit of her knowledge in the health and business arenas,” said Board President Frank Martin. “She is a positive addition and brings an eastern Parker County perspective."
Originally from Abilene, McAnally completed her Bachelor of Arts in history with an accounting minor at Texas A&M University in 1988.
“My family members are long-time residents of Parker County,” McAnally said. “I’m delighted to serve in this position. I feel very honored to serve Weatherford College.”
The board also unanimously approved extending the contract of WC President Dr. Kevin Eaton through 2018. Eaton came to WC in January 2003 as the Tech Prep Director. He was selected as Weatherford College’s Interim President in July 2009, and took on the role permanently on Jan. 1, 2010.
In other business, the board approved:
▪ The 2014-15 financial audit as presented by Snow Garrett Williams.
▪ Casting all 290 of Weatherford College’s votes to Dr. Luke Haynes for a position on the Parker County Appraisal District Board of Directors.
In his president’s report, Dr. Kevin Eaton:
▪ Reported employee notices from Dr. Molly Harris, Speech (resigned); Mary Knickerbocker, LVN Nursing (retired); Jake Jacobs, Speech (retired); and Mike Brown, Agriculture Department Head/Professor (passed away).
· Updated the board on the PCAD lawsuit involving Weatherford Regional Medical Center. A new appraisal value of $47 million for the hospital was agreed upon by both Weatherford Regional and the Appraisal District which will result in a $45,278 impact to Weatherford College. Rather than issue the hospital a refund, WC will reduce future tax revenue from the hospital by $14,675 per year for the next three years.
