COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Gov. Jay Nixon has nominated a University of Missouri junior to be the next student representative to the university system’s board of curators.
The Columbia Missourian reports that if the state Senate confirms the nomination of Gene Patrick Graham, a junior, he’ll serve as a nonvoting member of the board until Jan. 1, 2018. He’d fill the seat most recently held by University of Missouri-St. Louis graduate student Tracy Mulderig.
The student representative position cycles amount the university system’s four campuses in the order that they were founded. The University of Missouri is followed by Missouri University of Science & Technology, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and then the St. Louis campus.
Graham is a vocal music education student and a member of the university’s alumni association board.
