Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced today that she will appoint Kevin Crass
to the Board of Trustees of the University of Arkansas.
Crass will replace Charles Gibson and his term will expire on March 1, 2033.
“I am proud to appoint Kevin Crass, a highly respected, accomplished attorney, to serve on the Board of Trustees at the University of Arkansas,” Sanders said. “As the executive director of my transition team, he helped lay the foundation for my administration to hit the ground running on day one with bold, conservative reforms that empower all Arkansans. I am confident that his strong leadership, character, and experience will make him an invaluable member of the Board of Trustees.”
“It is a great honor and privilege to be appointed by Governor Sanders to serve on the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees,” Crass said. “As the Governor’s transition director, I saw first-hand her commitment to empowering all Arkansans with opportunity through bold education reforms. She will be Arkansas’ education governor. I look forward to working with the Board and the administration as we prepare the next generation of leaders to take our state to new heights.”
Crass also served as Executive Director of the governor’s transition team following her election this past November.
