Today, the Del Mar College Board of Regents appointed Todd M. Walter, president and owner of Timeless Design Group, to fill the District 4 seat vacated last month by former Regent James Duerr.
Immediately following the unanimous vote, Regent Walter was sworn in, took his seat and participated in the remainder of the Board meeting. His appointment will run through November 2014 when the seat is up for election.
Regent Walter has served on the Board of Trustees of the Del Mar College Foundation, Inc. since 2008 and currently chairs the Special Projects Committee. During his tenure with the Foundation, the College met its most ambitious fundraising challenge resulting in $2.6 million for student scholarships last year.
He currently serves on the Leadership Corpus Christi Executive Committee, the LCC Board of Directors and is a former class chair for that leadership program. Walter also serves on the Art Museum of South Texas Board of Governors, holding the office of chair-elect.
“With his experience and commitment to the College’s Foundation, Todd comes to the Board of Regents well versed in College issues and committed to our students,” said chair Trey McCampbell. “The Board interviewed four highly qualified candidates for this position. Unfortunately, we only had one seat to fill.”
“It will be an honor and privilege to serve the College in a new capacity,” Walter said. “I appreciate this opportunity to serve the community for the betterment of all.”
The DMC Board approves the College budget, sets the College district tax rate and approves the policies governing the Corpus Christi community college.
The College Board of Regents is made up of nine members. Five are elected to represent specific geographic areas of the district, and the other four serve at large. The DMC District includes all the area in the Calallen, Corpus Christi, Flour Bluff, Tuloso-Midway and West Oso Independent School Districts.
