Gov. Daugaard Appoints Lucas Lund To Board Of Regents

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced today that he will appoint Lucas Lund, of Sioux Falls, to the South Dakota Board of Regents. Lund will serve as the board’s student member.

 

“Lucas Lund is an impressive young leader,” said Governor Daugaard. “The student regent brings an important perspective to the leadership of our university system, and I appreciate that Lucas is willing to dedicate his time to this role.”

 

Lund is a senior at the University of South Dakota, where he is majoring in Spanish, international studies and political science. This year, he began the university’s master of public administration program, which he plans to complete in May 2020.

 

“It is truly an honor to be selected to serve as South Dakota’s next student regent,” said Lund. “This is an extraordinary learning opportunity for which I am extremely grateful, and I eagerly look forward to working alongside the Regents and our institutional leaders for the advancement of higher education in South Dakota.”

 

On campus, Lund works as a student assistant in the office of the Dean of Students and has taught Spanish to college-bound high school student populations through the Upward Bound summer program. He is chapter president of the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity and serves on the General Fraternity’s International Board of Directors. Lund is a co-founder and chairman of the Student Alumni Association, has been involved with Student Government and the Interfraternity Council, and was the President’s New Student Leader of the Year in 2016.

 

The South Dakota Board of Regents is the governing board for the state’s six universities and two special schools. By state law, the board’s nine members include one member who is a current university student. Lund will succeed Conrad Adam, of Pierre, as the student regent and will serve a two-year term.
