Governor Laura Kelly has appointed K-State alumnus and former BNSF Railway CEO Carl Ice to the Kansas Board of Regents.
Ice currently serves as the Vice Chairman of the KSU Foundation Board of Directors and is a member of the Salvation Army National Board of Directors.
He is also a former member of the KSU Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Advisory Council.
Ice graduated from K-State in 1979 with a bachelor of science in industrial engineering.
He was appointed alongside two KU alumni: Cynthia Lane, a 36-year education professional who currently serves as CEO of Evolve Education Leadership, and Wint Winter, an attorney, former CEO and former member of the Kansas Senate.
The Board of Regents is a bipartisan group that consists of nine members who serve staggered four-year terms.
Member appointments are made by the governor but must be confirmed by the Senate.
