Regents add 3 new members

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has appointed a former state senator, a Topeka attorney and the mayor of Garden City to the Kansas Board of Regents.

Sebelius named Christine Downey-Schmidt of Inman, Dan Lykins of Topeka and Janie Perkins of Garden City to serve four-year terms on the board. It oversees KU and the five other state universities, Washburn University, 19 community colleges and 11 technical schools and colleges.

Downey-Schmidt, whose tenure in the state senate ended last year, is a former teacher in Newton. Lykins practices law at Bryan, Lykins, Hejtmanek & Fincher. Perkins is mayor of Garden City and supplemental programs coordinator for public schools there.

They replace Deryl Wynn of Kansas City, Lew Ferguson of Topeka and Bill Docking of Arkansas City, who chose not to be appointed to another term.

The Regents president and CEO is Reginald L. Robinson. The other members and the expiration of their terms are Richard L. Bond (June 2006); Janice B. DeBauge (June 2007); Frank Gaines (June 2007); Nelson Galle, vice chair (June 2007); James Grier III (June 2006); and Donna L. Shank, chair (June 2006).
