Collin College board of trustees have appointed Steve Matthews to fill Place 2, previously occupied by Nancy Wurzman. Matthews will be sworn into office at tonight’s board meeting.
In December, Wurzman resigned from the board due to a relocation. Wurzman served in Place 1 of the board for six years and was elected to Place 2 in May 2017.
Matthews, a Richardson resident, has served on several public service roles with the college, such as the Collin College Foundation Board and on the Committee of 100, the college’s advising and advocacy committee. Professionally, Matthews is the director of governmental and public affairs, where he has been employed since 1990.
Matthews has also served as past chairman of the Allen, Frisco and Plano chambers of commerce and is a graduate of Leadership Allen, Leadership Plano, Leadership Richardson and Leadership North Texas.
“I have a long-held passion for the success of Collin College,” Matthews said. “I am deeply
honored by the board’s decision, and for the opportunity to serve our students and communities in this role.”
