Pence picks 8 for public university boards

– Gov. Mike Pence is filling the boards that oversee Indiana’s public universities.

Pence appointed eight trustees to four university boards Wednesday.

Gary Lehman and Bruce White were reappointed to the three-year terms on the Purdue University Board of Trustees. Amy MacDonell, John Dunn and W. Harold Calloway were all reappointed to four-year terms at the University of Southern Indiana.

Pence’s new appointments include Andrew Mohr and Michael Mirro, who will serve three-year terms on the Indiana University board. Pence also picked Mark Michael to serve one year as the student trustee at Vincennes University.
