Governor Perry appoints Rachal Salter as TWU’s first student regent



AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry has announced that Rachal E. Salter of Port Arthur, TX has been appointed the first student regent for Texas Woman’s University. She will serve a one-year term expiring Feb. 1, 2007.

“Our students have always had a high-profile presence at our regents’ meetings,” TWU Chancellor and President Dr. Ann Stuart said. “I join the board in welcoming Rachal as our student regent. I know that she will serve our students’ needs well.”

Ms. Salter, 20, is a senior nursing student at the TWU-Parkland campus. She is president of the TWU-Dallas Student Government Association and a member of the TWU Strategic Planning Steering Committee and the Texas Nursing Students Association. She has served as a member of the University Conduct Review Board and the University Curriculum Committee. Ms. Salter also is a volunteer for the Children’s Miracle Network and attends Highland Park Presbyterian Church. She currently works as a nurse extern at the Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. She will graduate in December 2006 and plans to continue at TWU as a graduate student in the healthcare administration program in Dallas.

“Through my involvement with student government, I know that the regents have always been very welcoming of students at their meetings,” Ms. Salter said. “ I look forward to being a student voice to the board and to express my fellow students’ needs, interests and ideas.”

In 2005, Gov. Perry signed legislation providing that each public university’s board of regents shall include one student member. Student regents will have the same powers and duties as the other members of the board, with the exceptions of voting and being counted to determine a quorum.
