Mary Hensley named president of Blinn College in Texas

For the first time in its 132-year history, Blinn College in Brenham, Texas, will have its first female president. The Board of Trustees of Blinn College is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Mary Hensley as the College’s 15th district college president.

Dr. Mary Hensley has been serving the Austin Community College District for 14 years, the last six and a half years as the Executive Vice President for College Operations. Among her responsibilities is oversight of 11 campuses and six off-campus centers. She also provides leadership and support to the Campus Advisory Committees for each campus.

Board President Douglas Borchardt noted, “Dr. Hensley brings years of community college experience, professionalism and a track record of successful leadership to Blinn College. The full Board is delighted to make this selection and we can foresee a very bright future for Blinn College under her leadership.” He added, “I am pleased that Dr. Hensley was the top choice. She is the right fit for Blinn College.”

Dr. Hensley is expected to assume the presidency on or about July 1. She stated, “I am honored and humbled by the faith the Board has shown in selecting me to lead this wonderful institution.” She continued, “Blinn College is known throughout Texas for excellence in the quality of its academic programs and innovative approaches to student success.”

Dr. Hensley was selected from a strong pool of applicants by a search committee made up of college faculty, staff and students as well as community members. The Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) assisted the Board with the national presidential search process. “The search itself was thorough and rewarding for the search committee and the Board. There were applications from throughout the country, and I was extremely pleased with the quality of the candidates,” stated Borchardt.
