Gov. Terry Branstad has appointed a University of Iowa student to the state Board of Regents.
Branstad on Friday named Hannah Walsh as the board's student member. The appointment is subject to Senate confirmation.
If confirmed, Walsh will serve until April 30, 2015. She fills the remainder of the term of Greta Johnson, who is no longer a student at one of Iowa's three public universities.
The 20-year-old Walsh is from Spirit Lake and majors in political science. She has worked as an Iowa Senate page and serves as co-chair of the University of Iowa Governmental Relations Committee.
