LUBBOCK – Texas Gov. Rick Perry has appointed Chad Greenfield as the Texas Tech University System Student Regent.

Greenfield, a senior exercise science major from Monahans, was appointed by Perry to represent the Texas Tech student body to the Board of Regents.

“I’m extremely honored to be selected to serve the student body at Texas Tech,” Greenfield said. “I’m very much looking forward to representing our students to the Board.”

Last year, the Legislature passed a bill and the Governor signed it into law allowing the appointment of a non-voting student regent to the governing board of each public university system. The student regent will rotate between Texas Tech University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and will serve a one-year term.

“This is a great opportunity for students from across the Texas Tech University System to be represented to the Board of Regents,” said Nathan Nash, president of the Texas Tech Student Government Association. “For Chad to be selected as the first Student Regent in Texas Tech’s history speaks very highly of his qualifications.”
