North Dakota Board of Higher Education seeking new member

January 3, 2020 GMT

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Board of Higher Education is accepting applications for an open seat created by the departure of board member Dan Traynor.

Traynor, of Devils Lake, resigned Thursday while he prepares to take over as a federal judge in North Dakota. He was appointed to the board in 2018.

Applications are due by March 3, said North Dakota School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler, who heads the board’s candidate nominating committee.

“Serving on any board is challenging, but it is also rewarding,” Baesler said.

The eight-member board includes seven citizen members and one student member. All members are appointed by the governor.
