Bishop reappointed to PBSC District Board of Trustees

Patrice Bishop, one of the newest members of the Palm Beach State College District Board of Trustees, has been reappointed to a four-year term by Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Her term on the five-member governing board runs Aug. 27, 2021-Aug. 31, 2025. The appointment must be confirmed by the Florida Senate.

Bishop, of Palm Beach Gardens, is executive vice president of Human Resources and Risk Management for Kitson & Partners, a real estate development company. She is a member of the Executive Women of the Palm Beaches, secretary of the Babcock Ranch Foundation and is the former vice president of HR Palm Beach County. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University.

She was first appointed to the board last December.

  1. Congratulations on your reappointment to the Board, Ms. Bishop. I hope you will be supportive of two issues at PBSC which are important to me. First, I believe the College should hire a third full-time music faculty member, to succeed Prof. Michael MacMullen, who retired in December. Over my 32+ years of full-time service on PBSC’s music faculty, I have seen our full-time professors reduced from five to only two. As the past three have retired, the College has let all of those positions go unfilled, and it severely limits our ability to expand our program and serve our students. Second, I believe the College should reinstate the PBSC Softball Team, which it eliminated after the abridged 2020 spring season. Our softball team has a proud history, with two former NATIONAL championship teams, and one eventual USA Olympic Softball Team gold medalist.
