Student’s Relationship to MSU’s Board of Regents Members

State law (Senate Bill 1325, TEC 51.969) requires that each student identify any relation to a current Board of Regent member. A student who is related to a current member of the governing board of that institution is prohibited from receiving scholarships unless the scholarship is awarded exclusively based on academic merit or is an athletic scholarship. It is a Class B misdemeanor to file a false statement.

Please review a list of current MidwesternStateUniversityBoard of Regents and then select the most appropriate answer below indicating your relation to any of the Board of Regent members.
