The Troy University Board of Trustees has reelected familiar faces to its top leadership positions.
C. Gibson Vance was named to the position of President Pro Tempore. Vance has been the President of the board since 2019 and a member of it since 2012.
“I think we have the best Board in the state,” Vance said. “We are a very cohesive group that works hard and puts the interests of Troy University first. We all support our Chancellor, and we are in a great position to continue moving TROY forward.”
Brig. General Edward F. Crowell was named Vice-President Pro Tempore and has served in that position since 2019. He joined the board in 2012.
“To serve my alma mater in this capacity with true leaders around who have the same value, concern and mission that I have for the University just means the world to me,” Crowell said. “I enjoy serving, but I enjoy serving even more when I am in the midst of other individuals who care so much about Troy University.”
Leadership at the university praised the two board members.
“I am grateful for the leadership Mr. Vance and Gen. Crowell provide to our Board of Trustees and our University,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor. “We are in the midst of one of the most exciting times in the history of Troy University, and the leadership provided by our Board of Trustees has and will continue to play a vital role in our future.”
