I think all 3 are outstanding choices.

A familiar face to UH, Welcome W. Wilson, Jr., who was one of the members with a term that expired last fall, will continue influencing Texas education with his appointment by Abbott to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

The other two terms being replaced belonged to Spencer Armour, III and Roger F. Welder.

Interesting on Welcome Wilson Jr being appointed to the Higher Ed board. That could be a very good thing for UH.

Joe Gutierrez was one of three Houston businessmen appointed to UH’s board last month to serve a six-year term. He, Doug Brooks and Jack Moore replaced Spencer Armour III, Roger F. Welder and Welcome W. Wilson Jr.

UH spokesman Mike Rosen called the decision personal and said his decision does not impact meeting operations. The board will meet with eight regents instead of nine, he wrote in an email.


I agree, this could be huge. We still have to get the Coordinating Board to approve the Med School. Gov. Abbott may be a T-Sip but he is proving to be a friend of UH.
