Nominations Sought for 2 Auburn Trustees

Gov. Robert Bentley says people interested in serving in two open positions on the Auburn University board of trustees may submit their names to the trustee selection committee.

Bentley is president of the five-member committee. Bentley said the committee is looking for replacements for John Blackwell, who represents a seven-county area in the Tennessee Valley, and Sam Ginn, who has an at-large seat. The two men are not eligible to serve another term.

Nominations should be submitted electronically to http://www.auburn.edu/trusteenominees . They are due by Nov. 9. Bentley said the committee will select no more than three people for interviews for each position and will complete the process by Jan. 31. The two nominees chosen by the committee are subject to approval by a majority of the state Senate.
