I cannot believe the Coastal Bend College board of trustees sat there Thursday and let the president’s sister, Dean Garcia, get credit for the Technical Early College High School Model.
Becky Simonson and Traci Younts developed and had that model approved for CBC to open four years ago. The CBC board voted to shelve the idea against the recommendation of Dr. Baynum. Now the same board is singing the praises of the two sisters? Becky Simonson’s Technical ECHS model was used by the Legislature to help create House Bill 5 and by Del Mar College last year to help create and open the first fully Technical ECHS on its west campus. To hear the dean take credit for the groundbreaking work of others seems to be par for the course of this administration. Take credit and shift blame is how this administration operates.
