MANHATTAN, Kan. — A legislative committee has signed off on Gov. Sam Brownback’s reappointments of three members of the Kansas Board of Regents whose terms expired in June.
Brownback reappointed Shane Bangerter of Dodge City, Ann Brandau-Murguia of Kansas City, and Helen Van Etten of Topeka to four-year terms.
The reappointments were approved last week by the Kansas Senate Confirmations Oversight Committee. The full Senate will consider the reappointments when it convenes in January.
Nine regents serve on the board, which oversees 32 higher-education institutions in the state. That includes six universities, along with several community colleges and technical colleges.
This story has been corrected to show Brownback has made the reappointments and they were confirmed by a legislative committee last week.
