COM Trustees Appoint Christine Brasher as Staff Attorney

Texas City — College of the Mainland trustees have appointed Christine Brasher to the new position of staff attorney.

COM has never before had such a position. In remarks to the board, President Dr. Warren Nichols said the staff attorney will save the college “considerably” in fees instead of using outside attorneys on routine matters.

Brasher is a graduate of the University of Memphis Law School. She has a bachelor’s degree from LSU.

The staff attorney will provide legal representation and advice through established procedures to the college and Board of Trustees. The position will touch nearly every area of law, including labor and employment, public contracting, intellectual property, business transactions, benefits, administrative law, health care law, federal and state constitutional and public law issues, and more.

In other actions, the board appointed acting nursing department director Mary Amanda Ordonez to the position permanently.

Ordonez, a registered nurse, has served as the acting director since summer 2017.

During the meeting, trustees noted that an ambitious agenda of construction and renovation would begin within the next two months.

On tap for the remainder of the year is the construction of a permanent storage facility, the renovation of the pool area into a multiuse meeting facility, the renovation of the Student Center and chemistry lab, the re-roofing of the Fine Arts building, and upgrading of underground utilities.

Also approved during the meeting were additional funds for the college’s Marketing and Public Affairs Office.
The next scheduled meeting of the board is Feb. 19 at the college on Amburn Road in Texas City.
