A community-wide reception honoring Angelo State University President James Hindman and his wife, Ann, for their contributions to both the university and the Concho Valley over the last dozen years has been scheduled for 4:30-6:30 p.m. Monday, May 7, on campus, 1910 Rosemont.
The reception, jointly sponsored by ASU and the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce, is open free to the public in the Davidson Center of the Houston Harte University Center.
Appointed by the Board of Regents of the Texas State University System, Hindman took office in January of 1995 as the third president since ASU became a state institution in 1965 and the eighth president in the institution’s overall history.
During his tenure, ASU has added six new buildings to the campus; completed major expansions of five other buildings; added 11 undergraduate and 12 graduate programs; expanded the ASU athletic program; and instituted a comprehensive planning process to better allocate university resources.
Prior to becoming ASU’s president, Hindman had served in administrative and teaching positions at five other universities, including Middle Tennessee State University, University of Northern Colorado and Eastern New Mexico as well as two TSUS institutions, Sul Ross State and Lamar universities.
Hindman earned his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in history from Texas Tech University. He is a member of many national and state honor societies and fraternities and has published numerous scholarly articles. He and Ann have two daughters, three granddaughters and a grandson.
