Blinn College District Trustee Stacy Aschenbeck has announced her resignation from the Board of Trustees after three years of service to the College and its students.
“It has been an honor to serve on Blinn’s Board of Trustees and to play a part in the College’s continued growth and success,” Aschenbeck said. “This decision will allow me to spend more time with my family while continuing to support Blinn.”
A third-generation educator who teaches communications at Texas A&M University, Aschenbeck was elected to represent Precinct 4 in 2015. During her tenure on the Blinn board, she helped oversee the launch of Blinn’s partnership with The Texas A&M University System as part of the RELLIS Academic Alliance at the RELLIS Campus.
Under her guidance, Blinn opened the Walter C. Schwartz Building at the RELLIS Campus in Bryan; Mill Creek Hall, a 464-bed student residence hall at the Brenham Campus; the Kruse Center, a student and community recreation center on the Brenham Campus; partnered with a variety of community organizations to expand the A.W. Hodde, Jr., Technical Education Center; introduced the Texas A&M Engineering Academies at Blinn; and expanded its workforce training offerings in Brazos County.
“Trustee Aschenbeck’s perspective as a Texas A&M University professor and her commitment to student success have helped the board make crucial decisions benefitting Blinn students,” said Charles Moser, Chair of the Blinn College District Board of Trustees. “Blinn has been fortunate to have her voice as a member of the board.”
Aschenbeck earned her associate degree from Blinn College in 1992. As a Texas A&M professor, Aschenbeck has earned the SLATE (Student-Led Awards for Teaching Excellence) Award three times, and earned recognition as a Fish Camp namesake.
“Trustee Aschenbeck and I both arrived at Blinn in May 2015,” said Dr. Mary Hensley, Chancellor of the Blinn College District. “Her dedication to higher education and commitment to students, both as a professor at Texas A&M and as a trustee at Blinn College, have helped us make bold decisions regarding the College’s future. We look forward to her continued friendship as a valued member of the Blinn family.”
Blinn’s Board of Trustees will host a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, in the Brenham Campus Administration Building Board Room to establish the process for appointing a new trustee to represent Precinct 4.
