Branch member Mildred Edwards appointed to the Kansas Board of Regents

Gov. Mark Parkinson has appointed Wichita Branch NAACP member Mildred Edwards to the Kansas Board of Regents.

"This past legislative session we made a renewed commitment to our regents institutions, acknowledging that the Kansas economy is only as strong as the higher education opportunities that prepare our workforce for the future," Parkinson said. "These newest members of the Board of Regents share that belief and remain committed to seeing our universities and community colleges succeed."

Edwards, of Wichita, is the executive director of the Kansas African Americans Affairs Commission. Prior to her appointment, she was the project director for STAND TOGETHER Coalition at their Regional Prevention Center of Wichita/Sedgwick County. She holds a master's in public health and a doctorate in psychology from Wichita State University.

The Board of Regents is a nine-member body which governs the state's six universities, and supervises and coordinates 19 community colleges, six technical colleges, and Washburn University.
