CCCCD Foundation, Inc. Welcomes New Board Members


August 27, 2004 -- The Collin County Community College District Foundation, Inc., has added two new board members to its roster, Terri Freer and Ezra C. Penermon.

Terri Freer (pictured top right) of Plano is the chief administrative officer of Women’s Diagnostic of Texas, a company she co-owns with her husband, Dr. Timothy Freer. Terri Freer is currently the president-elect of the Texas Federation of Business and Professional Women and the president of the Plano Public Library Foundation. She has also served on the boards of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the Bridge Breast Center in Dallas, the American Cancer Society (South Collin County Unit) and served as director of the Women’s Division of the Plano Chamber of Commerce. Freer was named to the “21 for the 21st Century” by Inside Collin County Business and is a graduate of Leadership Plano.

"Terri Freer is a joy to work with. I cannot say enough about her,” said CCCCD Trustee Emeritus Sue Olivier. "She embodies honesty, loyalty, dedication, all of this plus a warm and appealing personality. She will be a wonderful asset to the College Foundation, for all these reasons, but also for her professional knowledge and associations with women's health issues. She is a grand person, what my generation called 'top drawer'."

Ezra C. Penermon (pictured at bottom right) works as manager of technical workforce development at Texas Instruments in Dallas. Penermon has worked in semiconductor manufacturing, process engineering, equipment engineering and computer engineering during his 21-year career at T.I. Over the past six years he has served as the primary liaison to community colleges and technical schools in Texas and across the country. He is an employer liaison to the National Tech Prep Network Advisory Board. Penermon holds a bachelor's degree in electronics/management from Dallas Baptist University.

"Knowing what he was doing for T.I., his community relations with schools and other organizations throughout the area, he should be a definite advantage to the community college district," said Milton Buschbom, a retired T.I. employee and an executive director with the CCCCD Foundation board.
