Gov. Mitch Daniels has announced the reappointment of a member of the Ball State University Board of Trustees and the selection of one new trustee.
Frank Bracken, who has served on the board since 1980, has been reappointed. Matt Momper, a Ball State alumnus, also has been named to the board.
Bracken, of Indianapolis, is the vice president of the board of trustees and a member of the Ball State University Foundation Board of Directors. He is currently a private attorney and formerly served as deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Bracken earned his undergraduate degree from Carleton College and his law degree from the University of Michigan.
Momper, a 1983 Ball State graduate, is president of Momper Insulation in Fort Wayne. He received a Distinguished Alumni Award from his alma mater in 2007 and currently serves on the board of directors for the Ball State University Foundation and the Northeast Indiana Ball State Alumni Chapter. He holds a master's degree in business administration from Drake University.
"I'm very proud to serve the great state of Indiana and Ball State as a member of the university's board of trustees," said Momper. "My relationship with Ball State goes back to 1979, and so I am very familiar with its continuing drive toward excellence through the creation of new programs addressing the needs of both the state and society. I'm also very excited at the prospect of being able to bring my skills as an experienced businessman to my service on the board and, I hope, to help raise the university to the next rung on the ladder of success."
Both Bracken and Momper's appointments are effective immediately and will expire Dec. 31, 2011.
