COMMERCE—Darron Harris, alumnae of Texas A&M University-Commerce, recently accepted the position of assistant director of the A&M-Commerce Mesquite Metroplex Center.
Harris received his bachelor of science degree in technology management from A&M-Commerce in December 2011. During his time at the university, he worked part-time in various departments on campus in addition to holding several student leadership positions. “The assistant director position brings great responsibility, including ensuring the technology at the Metroplex Center campus is working and functioning properly,” said Russell Blanchett, Metroplex Center director. “The position is managerial and needs to have a person that is not only knowledgeable about technology and university procedure, but also integrity and character.
