Big Bend College in Moses Lake has a new Trustee after Governor Jay Inslee’s appointment of Amy Parris.

Parris currently works in the Othello School District, where she’s been for more than two decades.

She’ll replace Big Bend College Trustee Stephen McFadden, who is now with the Port of Pasco.

Parris also served on a search committee that recommended current Big Bend Community College President Dr. Sara Thompson Tweedy.

“I am very interested in supporting the goal of Dr. Tweedy to increase the BBCC student enrollment from our Adams County population centers. As the Othello School District’s Director of School to Career, it is within my purview to research, advocate and promote this vision,” Parris said.

Parris took part remotely in a short special Board of Trustees session Monday afternoon and will attend her first regular session on October 28.
