Board of Trustees Visits LETU Campus

Today, members of our LETU Board of Trustees are on campus, having traveled from all over the country to our semi-annual board meeting. During this meeting, we will welcome four new trustees onto the board, and say goodbye to three who are completing their terms.

The four new trustees include Bill Anderson, David Dykes, Paul Montgomery and Doug Roszhart:

Bill Anderson of Colorado Springs, Colo., is an LETU alumnus who works as a leadership consultant and is the former CEO of Christian Booksellers Association. Anderson is returning to the board after his previous term serving as a trustee from 2007 to 2011.
David Dykes of Tyler, Texas, is the pastor of Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, one of the leading churches in America in missions and evangelism.  Dykes had been pastor to Marsha and me since 1999.
Paul Montgomery of southeastern Pennsylvania is a financial market analyst who has served on our board before and led the management of our university endowment. He currently is director of portfolio research at an investment advisory firm he owns with his son.
Doug Roszhart of Greenville, Texas is an engineer with L-3 Communications who earned his engineering degree at LETU in 1981. He will serve as the new alumni representative on the board. He chairs the university's alumni council and has recruited numerous LETU engineers.

During this board meeting, business items will include approving the list of our December graduates, along with faculty promotions and tenure. The board also will approve the final version of the 2013-2014 fiscal year budget. New board officers will be elected to new one-year terms.

Also at this meeting, we will express our great appreciation as we say goodbye to three trustees who are completing their terms on the board, including Joe Nowiczewski of Houston; Wayne Trull of Arkansas; and Jim Mauldin of Longview. We are deeply grateful for their faithful service and the love they have for LeTourneau University.
