Gov. Perry appoints Mary Pincoffs Wilson of Austin to TWU Board of Regents


September 28, 2009 – AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry has announced the appointment of Mary Pincoffs Wilson of Austin to the Texas Woman’s University Board of Regents.

“I join my fellow regents in welcoming Ms. Wilson to the board,” said Harry L. Crumpacker II, chair and presiding officer of the TWU Board of Regents. “I look forward to working together as TWU continues to grow and thrive as an education leader in Texas.”
Ms. Wilson will take over the remaining term of regent Lou Halsell Rodenberger, who passed away earlier this year. Ms. Wilson’s term expires Feb. 1, 2011.

“Our regents are so important to the success of this university,” TWU Chancellor Ann Stuart said. “Ms. Wilson’s experience as a teacher, administrator and community volunteer will be a tremendous asset to TWU as we continue to meet the state’s critical workforce needs.”

Ms. Wilson was a teacher in the Highland Park Independent School District and in the Austin Independent School District, where she also directed the College and Career Center at Austin High School. Her involvement in Texas education spans more than 20 years. Her extensive community service reflects an interest in health and children’s issues, including serving as president of Les Amis de Hospice Austin from 2006-2007, on the development board of the Seton Family of Hospitals and as a mentor at the Helping Hand Home for Children.

Ms. Wilson received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin and her master of arts in teaching from Emory University.

“TWU has distinguished itself by providing a nationally recognized educational system, which is leading the way in producing graduates who are exceptionally prepared to enhance the quality of life in Texas,” Ms. Wilson said. “It is a privilege to be able to serve the state of Texas as a regent to this excellent university, and I look forward to working with Chancellor Stuart and my fellow board members.”

Ms. Wilson’s appointment is subject to confirmation by the Texas Senate.
