The Weatherford College Board of Trustees voted Thursday to name Dr. Tod Farmer as the lone finalist for college president.
After a mandated 21-day waiting period, the board is scheduled to vote to formally hire Farmer on Friday, May 4.
Farmer currently serves as chief of staff to Tarleton State University President Dr. Dominic Dottavio. He manages the operations of the Office of the President and coordinates legal and policy issues with the Texas A&M University System as well as with state agencies and organizations.
He also brings experience from the K-12 arena, having spent 10 years with the Springtown Independent School District in positions ranging from director of student services and associate director of instructional technology to high school principal and fifth grade teacher.
Farmer is a Weatherford High School and Weatherford College graduate and is believed to be the first WC graduate to be selected as the college’s president.
Farmer’s wife of 21 years, Kathleen, is also a Weatherford College graduate. The Aledo native teaches third grade at Stuard Elementary School in the Aledo ISD.
