Flores stepping down as HC provost

May 22, 2012

Howard College Provost Javier Flores submits resignation

Goodbyes and hellos will figuratively highlight this month’s Howard College trustees’ meeting.
Trustees are expected to accept the resignation of Provost Javier Flores and greet his replacement when they meet in the Tumbleweed Room at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Dr. Flores, who is resigning after 13 years with HC, has accepted the position of vice president for student affairs and enrollment management at Angelo State University in San Angelo. During his time in Big Spring, he has served as dean of students, vice president of student affairs and interim provost at SouthWest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf, before becoming HC provost two years ago.
College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks said Flores will be missed.
“Javier has done a great job for the Howard County Junior College District,” Sparks said. “He certainly made his mark here. We will miss him, but certainly wish him well in his new post.”
Assuming Flores’ duties will be a familiar face on the Big Spring campus — Director of Correctional Studies
Terry Hanson.
Hanson (not to be confused for college vice president Terry Hansen) will assume the title of Executive Dean for the Big Spring area; the title of provost is being retired, Sparks said.
Aside from directing correctional studies for the district, Hanson also has headed the workforce training program at Howarwd and has served on the district’s administrative cabinet for several years.
“Terry has served as our leader for correctional studies for several years and has done a great job for us in that capacity,” Sparks said. “He has the necessary background to assume these new leadership duties … and he’ll do a great job.”
In other business Wednesday, trustees will consider:
• Updates on construction of the new agriculture complex and water wells, the search for a new SWCID provost and preliminary work on the district’s next budget.
• Bids and catalog and handbook changes.
