“TSTC is an excellent educational institution system that provides value to the State of Texas with its innovative, technical education and quality, well-trained graduates,” said Meade. “I’ve watched over the years TSTC meet the challenges of today’s Texas workforce, and consider it a privilege to be able to serve on the board of such a well-respected organization. I am very thankful to Governor Abbott’s leadership, and I appreciate him naming me a regent.”

Meade said he looked forward to learning more about TSTC, visiting campuses around the state and working with the team of regents.
