FPC Regent to focus on Education

Debra Wells

Recently appointed Spring Creek representative, Lynne Wyatt, joined the Frank Phillips College Board of Regents in January, bringing value and perspective to the board.
Wyatt and husband, Joe, have been married for thirty-seven years and have six children: Juliette and Aria of the home; Caleb of Austin; Anna, a captain in the Army; Rebecca, owner of Just Breathe Massage Therapy in Borger; and Luke, a sophomore at FPC.
She completed her education at Methodist Hospital School of Nursing in Lubbock as a Registered Nurse and is currently working at Grace Church as the Early Childhood Ministries Coordinator. The Wyatts are members of Grace Church.
“I believe an opportunity for higher education is crucial for our young people,” she said, “so they can live a life of independence and contribute to our society through their training with wisdom and vision.”
When she became aware of an opening on the FPC board, she decided to serve in the hopes of being able to help strengthen FPC’s role in the community and to ensure its long-term success so students of all ages can achieve their maximum potential, she said.
“One of the most important aspects of higher education is to ensure that students remain curious and are driven to learn so they recognize that learning is an everyday process rather than believing that a degree is an end to the education process,” Wyatt explained. “I want kids to have a hunger for learning so they have a passion to dig in and learn on their own.”
She said she would also like to see an increase in continuing education classes with apprenticeship opportunities to support area industries.
FPC Board Chairman, Scott Radach, said, “The FPC Board of Regents is excited to welcome Lynne Wyatt as our newest member from the Spring Creek ISD. Lynne brings more diversity to the board and is enthusiastic about the future of Frank Phillips College.”
