Texas Senate confirms Cecilia May Moreno as new TWU Regent


AUSTIN — The Texas State Senate confirmed the appointment of Cecilia May Moreno, Ed.D., to the Texas Woman’s University Board of Regents earlier this week. Dr. Moreno, a TWU distinguished alumna, will serve on the TWU governing board until Feb. 1, 2013.

“Dr. Moreno’s long-standing ties with TWU and the Texas secondary education community will be a tremendous asset in ensuring that TWU continues to meet the critical needs of the state by educating teachers and contributing to TWU’s involvement in the challenges of college readiness, access and participation," TWU Chancellor and President Dr. Ann Stuart said.

Harry L. Crumpacker II, chair and presiding officer of the TWU Board of Regents, said, “I join my fellow regents in welcoming Dr. Moreno to the board and I look forward to working with her as TWU continues to grow and thrive as an education leader in Texas.”

Dr. Moreno is the superintendent of schools for Carrizo Springs Consolidated Independent School District. Prior to her service at CSCISD, she worked for the Laredo Independent School District for 39 years, was a Laredo City Councilmember for 10 years and served as the mayor pro-tem for the city.

She was named a TWU Distinguished Alumna in 2003 and has been inducted into the Laredo Commission for Women’s Hall of Fame and the LULAC Hispanic Heritage Hall of Fame. She is a member of the Texas Association of School Administrators, LULAC Council No. 12, Webb County Heritage Foundation and Laredo Center for the Arts.

Dr. Moreno earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree from TWU, an MBA from Laredo State University and her doctorate of education from Texas A&M University at Kingsville.

“It is exciting for me to return to the same university that I attended as a 16-year-old college freshman and serve on their Board of Regents,” Dr. Moreno said. “As the state works to create P-16 Councils that address the education continuum of pre-kindergarten to college, I see an excellent opportunity to enhance this concept by bringing my many years of public school experience to the board.”

Dr. Moreno was appointed to fill the expired term of Dr. Therese Bartholomew Bevers of Houston. Earlier this month the Texas Senate confirmed P. Mike McCullough and George R. Schrader of Dallas to fill the expired terms of Mr. Kenneth Ingram of Denton and Ms. Ann Williams of Dallas, respectively.

The next meeting of the TWU Board of Regents will be held June 8 at the TWU Institute of Health Sciences-Presbyterian Center in Dallas.
