Place 8 for the Collin College Board of Trustees will face a runoff election between Jim Orr and Collin Kennedy. Early voting is set for June 1-5 and June 8-9. The runoff election date will be June 13.

In the initial election Kennedy received 4,325, or 26.9 percent of the total votes and Orr received 6,426 votes or 39.96 percent.

Attorney Kennedy of McKinney wants to ensure that Collin College remains an elite and affordable higher education for young adults. He believes evolving technologies can be used to make the college an even better value, and the school can do a better job of leveraging resources in the community. Kennedy further points out that the college needs to keep up with an ever expanding population in Collin College, and stay abreast of change so that it can offer specialized vocational training to provide students with a better way of life.

Orr of Lucas would bring a background in technology and business to guide Collin College through future growth and change, working with students, school faculty and staff and other board members. He recognizes that technology continues to change and the college needs to stay focused on integrating new technology into the learning experience, and growth needs to be managed to keep pace with the increasing number of students. Orr is an electrical engineer with a Master’s degree in Business Education who has worked in business development with several large corporations.
