Kristin Vandergriff has resigned from the Tarrant County College Board of Trustees effective immediately, the district announced Wednesday.
Vandergriff, district director for Congressional District 12 for Rep. Kay Granger and a former Arlington resident, is resigning because she no longer lives within District 3, which covers north and central Arlington and part of Euless, according to a district news release. She was first elected to a six-year term in 2002. The current term for the seat expires in 2021.
“I am proud to collectively serve as a Board, yet pay attention to every corner of the county. Our single agenda is truly about providing affordable, open access to quality teaching and learning,” Vandergriff said. “I am proud to know you, honored to work with you and tag along for the epic ride, challenges (and) innovations, with incredible success…because you are making it good for students, caring for what they do in life.”
Next steps will be determined at the next governance committee meeting.
“(Kristin) is and always will be her own person, and she has demonstrated her own skills at a level to be admired,” said Board President Louise Appleman. “We have been very fortunate to be beneficiaries of her time and talent.”
