EPCC Board of Trustee members sworn in for new terms

El Paso Community College (EPCC) held a swearing-in ceremony for trustees during the May board meeting. The swearing-in ceremony welcomed Ms. Nina Piña who was newly elected.

Also sworn in were incumbents Dr. Carmen Olivas Graham and Ms. Christina Sanchez. All three won their respective elections on May 4, 2019.

“We are pleased to welcome Ms. Nina Piña, Ms. Christina Sanchez and Dr. Carmen Olivas Graham who were elected and sworn in as EPCC Trustees for a 6-year term,” EPCC President Dr. William Serrata said.

“The Board of Trustees has a laser-focus on student success and sets the vision for EPCC in achieving our mission of providing accessible, affordable and quality education so our students are able to achieve their dreams.”

Mrs. Nina Piña is the newly elected representative for District 6. As an educator for 11 years, former student and the parent of EPCC students, she advocates for the importance of higher education because it is the vehicle for upward mobility.

“As a businessperson, I’ve seen how higher education assists in our current economic environment,” Piña said.

Ms. Christina Sanchez is serving her first full term representing District 4 after originally being appointed to the board to fill a vacancy.

An El Paso native and the first generation of her family to attend college, she has practiced law with the El Paso County Attorney’s Office and currently serves as the Division Chief for the Commissioners Court Legal Unit.

In 2018, she became the President-Elect for the El Paso Women’s Bar Association.

Dr. Carmen Olivas Graham will serve her third term as District 5 Representative.

She has served Texas public schools for more than 27 years in various capacities starting as a teacher, administrator and parent educator.

As an adjunct professor, she has taught both at the university and community college levels and has worked with various international and local teacher education programs.

In addition to swearing-in trustees, the board also elected officers as follows:

Mr. Brian Haggerty, Chair

Dr. Carmen Olivas Graham, Vice Chair

Mrs. Belen Robles, Secretary
