TWU’s Benavides chosen as THEHRA president-elect


AUSTIN — Lewis Benavides, associate vice president of human resources for Texas Woman’s University, recently was voted president-elect for the Texas Higher Education Human Resources Association (THEHRA).

More than 500 human resources professionals from 34 colleges and universities across the state are members of the THEHRA. The association’s mission is to contribute to the professional advancement of human resources administration in state-supported senior colleges and universities in Texas.

Mr. Benavides will become the president of the organization in 2010.

“I look forward to working with the association and its members to enhance the field of human resources in higher education,” he said. “With the potential for tightening university budgets statewide, it will be more important than ever for Texas public universities to maximize their largest asset — human resources.”

Mr. Benavides, who joined TWU in 2002, has more than 20 years of human resource management experience. He has served two terms as president of the North Texas Society for Human Resources Management and was appointed by the Dallas City Council to five consecutive terms on its Civil Service Commission. In 2005, Gov. Perry appointed him as a commissioner with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

Mr. Benavides is a graduate of San Antonio College and Southwest Texas State University.
