Poshard reappointed to SIU board

Sunday, January 30, 2005

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Gov. Rod Blagojevich has reappointed former Democratic congressman Glenn Poshard to a six-year term on the Southern Illinois University board of trustees.

Blagojevich administration officials filed paperwork Friday to reappoint Poshard, whose current one-year term as board chairman was set to expire. His new term begins Monday.

Poshard retired as vice chancellor for administration at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale last year. He served five terms in Congress and in the state legislature before that.
