Christal Albrecht selected to lead Alvin Community College
The Alvin Community College Board of Regents voted on February 27 to name Dr. Christal Albrecht as the lone finalist for the president of ACC.
Her contract is set to be approved after a 21-day waiting period. Upon approval, Albrecht will begin work at the college on May 19.
“I’m thrilled and honored to be selected as the lone finalist for the ACC presidency,” she said. “I look forward to working with and getting to know the Board of Regents as well as the faculty, staff, students and community members.”
She said as college president she would also work to build relationships with local business and industry.
“I want to continue the good work of my predecessor, Dr. Rodney Allbright,” she added.
Albrecht was chosen from more than 30 applicants for the position.
She will be the college’s fifth president following Dr. Allbright, who is exiting the college after serving 38 years as president.
Dr. Allbright has been instrumental in establishing the Law Enforcement Academy, the Child Care Lab School, overseeing four accreditation reaffirmations with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, involving the faculty and staff to compile the annual budget and to create long-term planning for the college.
ACC Regent Mike Pyburn, who was chair of the Presidential Selection Committee, said Dr. Albrecht will serve as an excellent leader for the college faculty and staff.
“Dr. Albrecht was our top candidate from the very beginning,” he said. “We believe she has the experience and the education to take this college to the next level.”
