Gov. Mike Pence has named Kyle Pierce, a political science and pre-law major, to a two-year term as the student representative on Ball State University’s Board of Trustees, effective July 1.

Pierce, of Fishers, Ind., is entering his sophomore year and is active with the Student Government Association, serving as a student senator. He also served on the Freshman Leadership Council and on the Interfraternity Council. Pierce is a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

In addition to the Ball State appointment, Pence also announced new student trustees for Vincennes University and the University of Southern Indiana.

“The students named … to our state universities’ boards of trustees represent some of Indiana’s best and brightest,” Pence said.

“Their insights, experience and guidance, coupled with those of their fellow trustees, will further enrich higher education in Indiana and will benefit each state university accordingly throughout the duration of their terms.”

Pierce succeeds Michael T. Miller, an architecture and political science major, as the student member of the board.
