O.K. Carter will not seek re-election in May 2017, the Tarrant County College District 5 trustee told the district board this week.

Speaking at the Thursday Dec. 15 regular board meeting, Carter expressed satisfaction in accomplishments made during his time on the board.

“There are few callings more worthy than higher education and no institution contributes more to self-actualization and economic self-improvement in Tarrant County than TCC,” Carter told the board.

“To be part of something like that has been a real life milestone for me. I’m proud of what the TCC family has accomplished over the past six years.”


Carter was elected to the board in 2010, with the writer, journalist and educator representing South Arlington, Mansfield and Dalworthington Gardens.

Carter cited gains in student success rates, expanded district self-examination and transparency practices, and new aviation and energy technology facilities as among accomplishments made by the college during his tenure.

“Though I’ll be leaving the board, I plan to stay active with TCC, particularly in the endowment fundraising arena,” Carter said.

Board President Louise Appleman praised Carter and strides made during his tenure.

“Since joining the board, Mr. Carter has taken his responsibilities very seriously and has made it a point to ensure that we carefully examine the return on investment of every nickel we spend,” Appleman said. 

“His commitment to financial stewardship was evident in every board meeting, and I know that same commitment will enable him to continue advocating for TCC.”

Elections for district seats 3, 4 and 5 will be held in May 2017.
