Jared Gorshe, who will graduate in May with bachelor’s degrees in political science and criminal justice, has been named as the student representative for the Arizona Board of Regents. Gorshe was nominated by Gov. Doug Ducey.

“I am honored to have been appointed by the governor and to receive the unanimous support of the Senate Education Committee. I look forward to representing the student voice on the Arizona Board of Regents and working on behalf of the students of all three universities to ensure educational excellence and opportunity,” Gorshe said.

Gorshe is currently serving as chief of staff for the Associated Students of Northern Arizona University and has been accepted into NAU’s Master of Public Administration Program.

“Jared has been an active NAU student, participating in student government leadership positions, and we look forward to having him as the newest student regent at the ABOR,” said NAU President Rita Cheng.

After confirmation by the Arizona state senate, Gorshe will represent students at the three state universities for one year as a non-voting student regent followed by a second year with voting privileges.
