Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has appointed Jarett Lujan as student regent for the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents for the 2017-18 academic year, his office announced today (April 26).

Lujan, originally from Marfa, Texas, is pursuing a Master of Education in student development and leadership in higher education from Angelo State University. He becomes the 12th student to serve on the Board of Regents and is the third student regent from Angelo State University. In addition, Lujan is the first Hispanic student to serve on the board.

"Jarett did an excellent job representing ASU students on campus and in the community when he was student body president," said ASU President Brian J. May. "I have no doubt he will provide that same type of outstanding service on the TTU System Board of Regents. The entire ASU Ram Family is proud of Jarett for earning this appointment. He certainly deserves it, and we wish him the best of luck."

Lujan served as Angelo State University's president of the Student Body/Student Government Association during the 2015-16 academic year. He has served ASU as an admissions counselor during the past year mentoring and advising high school students in the West Texas region and representing ASU at college fairs and presentations.

He was also a track and field student-athlete for the Rams throughout his undergraduate tenure. Lujan scored points in the Lone Star Conference Championships in 2014 and 2015 in the 800-meters competing as a mid-distance runner. His best finish was fourth place in 2014.

"Jarett has proven himself as a dedicated and hard-working leader who strives to represent and serve his fellow students," said Chancellor Robert L. Duncan. "I'd like to congratulate Jarett on his appointment, and I'm confident he will provide quality insight and perspectives while serving in this important position."

Lujan will serve a one-year term beginning June 1, and his first Board of Regents meeting will take place Aug. 10-11 in Lubbock. He replaces Jeremy Stewart of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso, who was appointed in 2016.

Lujan received a Bachelor of Science in biology with a minor in chemistry from Angelo State University in 2016. He has an extensive background of student involvement at ASU while also performing countless hours or community service in the San Angelo area.

Angelo State University continues to thrive as a comprehensive regional institution of higher education. Joining the Texas Tech University System in 2007, the university offers numerous degrees at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level from more than 100 majors and concentrations.
