Torrington businessman Jeff Marsh was elected Thursday as chairman of the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees, effective in May.
Marsh, who served as the board’s vice president for the past two years, will take the gavel from Dave True, of Casper.
Marsh first was appointed as a trustee by Gov. Matt Mead in 2011. In addition to serving as vice president of the board for the past two years, he was the board’s secretary in 2014-17 and treasurer in 2012-14.
Also Thursday, John McKinley, of Cheyenne, was elected vice president; Kermit Brown, of Laramie, was elected treasurer; and Michelle Sullivan, of Sheridan, was elected secretary.
Appointed by the governor with consent of the Wyoming State Senate, the UW Board of Trustees consists of 12 members appointed to six-year, staggered terms. As the institution’s governing body, the trustees have a broad range of responsibilities, including major policy and budgetary matters affecting the university.
