Gov. Perry appoints Christianne Kellett of Arlington TWU’s new student regent


AUSTIN — Gov. Rick Perry has announced his appointment of Christianne Kellett of Arlington as the new student regent for Texas Woman’s University. She will serve a one-year term expiring Feb. 1, 2008.

“I join the board in welcoming Christianne as our new student regent,” TWU Chancellor and President Dr. Ann Stuart said. “I know that she will do an excellent job representing her peers.”

Ms. Kellett, 20, is a senior with a dual major of government/legal studies and business administration/marketing at the TWU Denton campus. She is a recruiter and provides administrative support to the Texas Woman’s University Leadership Institute. Ms. Kellett is a member of the TWU Honors Scholar Program and is the public relations coordinator for the TWU Student Government Association. She serves as a court monitor for Mothers Against Drunk Driving and as a mentor with Communities in Schools. She also volunteers with Habitat for Humanity and the Private School Interscholastic Association.

“I feel privileged to represent TWU students at the Board of Regents. I hope to draw on the experience of the first student regent to further shape the role of what the TWU student regent will become,” Ms. Kellett said. “I look forward to working with the board and expressing my fellow students’ needs, interests and ideas.”

Ms. Kellett replaces Rachal Salter, who served as the first TWU student regent in 2006.

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.
