As a trustee of the Oregon State University Foundation, I am excited with the appointment of a new institutional board at OSU. The university will be poised to make an even bigger impact in Central Oregon. Our part of the state continues to work hard to create economic opportunity and to find new partnerships that take advantage of our unique strengths. This group of OSU leaders will create a new set of pathways and connections for our region to explore, and I plan to be active in reaching out to them once they are appointed.
