The Kansas Board of Regents on Friday announced the 25 member search committee for the next president at Kansas State University.
The committee is chaired by K-State alumnus and retired BNSF Railway CEO Carl Ice, who was named chair in June. The committee also includes former U.S. Senator Pat Roberts, K-State Athletic Director Gene Taylor, Manhattan City commissioner and former mayor Usha Reddi as well as Kevin Lockett, a former K-State and NFL football player and businessman.
The committee also includes K-State Foundation Board of Directors Vice Chair Mary Vanier as well as Steel and Pipe Supply Chairman and Flint Hills Christian School co-founder Dennis Mullin.
In a statement Friday, Ice said the Board of Regents “have appointed a broad and impressive group of people that bring multiple perspectives to the selection committee.”
Current K-State President and retired four star general Richard Myers announced in May his intention to retire at the end of 2021.
