We (the Trustees of Louisiana College) received word yesterday (via email from President Joe Aguillard) of the new Committee Chair appointments made by our incoming Chairman, Rev. Tommy French. The Chairman has full authority to select those who will serve in this capacity (I actually support this practice). The 6 Committee Chairs, along with the 3 Officers of the board make up the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees.
For those keeping score, all but one of the Committee Chairs have been replaced (another former committee chair, Rev. French, was elected Board Chairman and is making the appointments). None of the 3 Board Officers were reelected by the Board. Thus, only 2 of the 9 members that make up the Executive Committee served on the Executive Committee last year. As a side note, not one "vocally dissenting" member was chosen for service in this capacity. Please pray for transparency and clarity of direction for us as we move forward.
PS: Please don't read this as sour grapes. At this point I am more than satisfied with my role. However, I would like to thank former Chairman Gene Lee for giving me the privilege of serving in that capacity.
