Watson steps down from WC board

Joel Watson, WC Board resignation

Joel Watson announced his resignation from the Weatherford College Board of Trustees Thursday afternoon. The resignation is effective immediately.

Watson, a Weatherford native and a WC alumnus, was elected to the board in 2009 and had served as the board’s vice chair since that time. He was re-elected to an additional six-year board term in 2015.

“I regret Joel’s decision to leave the board,” said Mac Smith, newly-elected board chair. “He has served Weatherford College and the board as vice chairman for eight years. I appreciate his presence and contributions during his tenure, and he should be commended for his service to his alma mater.”

The board will discuss appointing a replacement for Watson at a later date.

“Parker County taxpayers have lost another great and honest custodian of their hard-earned tax dollars,” said board member Elaine Carter. “Joel has worked hard for WC and will be missed on the board.”
