Governor Perry Appoints Student Regent for Texas Tech University System

Governor Rick Perry Friday appointed Kelli Stumbo as the Texas Tech University System Student Regent.

Stumbo, a second year law student from Flower Mound, is the first student from the Texas Tech University Law School to serve on the Board of Regents. She earned a bachelor's degree in public relations from Texas Tech University in 2004.

"I am extremely honored to be selected to serve as the student regent," Stumbo said. "I am very excited about representing the students of all three of our institutions and being their voice on the board."  

"We look forward to having Kelli join us on the board," said Scott Dueser, chairman of the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents. "I have known her for a number of years and I think the governor made an excellent selection. Our experience has been that student regents lend a fresh insight into the issues that come before the board."

"Students are our first priority at Texas Tech," said Chancellor Kent Hance. "Having a student regent gives the students of our three universities direct input into the decision making process. I look forward to working with Kelli."

The first student regent came from Texas Tech University and was appointed in 2006. Ebtesam Attaya Islam , appointed in 2007, came from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. By law, the student regent will rotate between Texas Tech University, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Angelo State University and will serve a one-year term.
