On June 11 the TWU Board of Regents received three new members appointed by Governor Greg Abbott: John V. “Vic” Lattimore, Jr. of Plano; Dr. Nolan Perez of Harlingen; and Dr. Ann Scanlon McGinity of Pearland, already a member of the board. The regents’ terms will end on February 1, 2021. Chancellor Dr. Carine Feyten said in an email: “We are thrilled about the appointment of our new regents and grateful to Governor Abbott for naming three extremely well-qualified and fantastic individuals.”
Feyten wrote of Lattimore: “John V. ‘Vic’ Lattimore, Jr., is a highly accomplished businessman from North Texas, and we are eager to have a person of his caliber help us as we embrace opportunities in higher education.”
Lattimore’s background in business includes his roles as president and chairman of the Board of Lattimore Properties, Inc., as president of Lattimore Materials Company, as former chairman of the Collin County Regional Strategic Planning Board, and as past president of the Holy Family School, to name a few. He is also distinguished by being a lifetime member of Safari Club International and the Dallas Safari Club, international hunting organizations.
Feyten said in an email: “Dr. Nolan Perez brings with him a background in medicine and education that will be an important asset to our board as we advance our reputation in health care.”
Perez’s experience in health care and education includes his role as a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and Fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology, and his placement as a Clinical Assistant Professor and Education Coordinator for Gastroenterology for the University of Texas’ Health Science Center in San Antonio, among other qualifications.
Feyten wrote of McGinity: “Ann already is a treasured member of our board, and we could not be more pleased to have her with us for another term.”
McGinity holds vast experience in the health care and education fields as well, ranging from her role as the Chief Operating Officer for Global Services at Houston Methodist Hospital to her fellowship in the American Academy of Nursing to her positions at Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Texas. In 2005, she was honored as an outstanding nurse leader by the Houston Texas Nursing Association.
