When former EPCC board member Dr. John E. Uxer Sr. announced his resignation in June the college didn’t have to go very far to find his replacement.
John E. Uxer Jr. stands beside his father, Dr. John E. Uxer Sr., as he is being sworn in by Judge Ana Perez with President Serrata standing by in the backgroud.
John E. Uxer, Jr. took the place of his father when he was sworn in by Judge Anna Perez to the Board of Trustees District 1 on Aug. 19.
“It is a position of trust I always wanted to fulfil, I have been interested in education for a long time and this is an opportunity,” said Uxer Jr.
Uxer Jr. was appointed to finish the term of his father.
Because of the vacancy applicants didn’t have to run for election to fill the chair, but Uxer Jr, will have to run in the next elections being held May 2017.
“I think one of the most important things you can do is learn how to communicate, it will work for any field,” said Uxer Jr.
