Dr. Stephen Broyles, dean of administrative services at North Central Texas College (NCTC) since May 2000, was honored at a reception Thursday at 2 p.m. regarding his retirement from the college.
Broyles’s responsibilities for technology at NCTC included the telephone system, facilities master planning, maintaining local board policies, records management, purchasing and elections.
Since his father was a member of the United States Air Force, Broyles traveled all over the world and experienced a diversity of cultures both in the United States and Europe. Born in Ohio, he graduated from South Hadley High School in Massachusetts and received a bachelor of arts degree in music from Ohio State University.
After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Air force as an education and training officer and retired as a lieutenant colonel after 23 years of service in 1992. He received a doctorate of public administration degree from The University of Alabama and served as City Administrator in the City of Muenster from 1995-2000.
Broyles immediate plans are to travel and see family with his wife Kay. He has two children living in the Houston area and five grandchildren.
“After thirteen and a half years at NCTC it is bitter sweet to leave,” Broyles said. “I will miss the people the most. I have enjoyed working with some of the most caring people around. They will do anything to help anyone at this college.”
NCTC admissions administrator Janet Cox said, “Dr. Broyles has one of the strongest work ethics of anyone I have ever met. When ever we had a question on anything, Dr. Broyles was always available for an answer. We will miss him and he has been a great asset for NCTC.”
Besides visiting family, Broyles hopes to return to the sites of some of his former travels as well as see new vistas.
“We just got back from a trip to Peru and we want to go back to Alaska to see the northern lights. And eventually there will probably be a trip to Orlando with the grand kids,” he continued.
“We will probably need another vacation after that.” he quipped.
Broyles says that he hopes to be able to return to NCTC in the future to do a little teaching.
