The contract of Dr. Kelvin Sharp was extended a year Thursday by the Board of Regents at South Plains College.
Sharp, who has been college president here for 11 years, was given a one-year extension on his three-year contract.
Regent Bobby Nealís motion to extend the contract was endorsed by the rest of the board.
Mike Box, board president, said all of the surveys completed by regents were excellent.
‘We appreciate all he does for our college,’ Box said.
Sharp thanked the board, noting that ‘a lot of the credit goes to those in the room now.’
The college’s Physical Therapy Education program recently went through an accreditation visit, said Robin Satterwhite, vice president for Student Affairs.
‘We did very well. They were complimentary of our faculty and facilities,’ Satterwhite said. ‘Overall it was very positive.’
