Student rep appointed to ND higher ed boardBISMARCK – Gov. Jack Dalrymple has appointed Mayville State University business administration major Devin Hoffarth as the new student representative on North Dakota’s State Board of Higher Education.
Hoffarth replaces Sydney Hull, whose one-year term on the board ended June 30.
In a Monday written statement, Dalrymple said Hoffarth will bring a “unique perspective” to the board because he also has attended a two-year college.
Hoffarth, a native of Langdon, N.D., graduated in May with an associate’s degree in accounting and business administration from Lake Region State College in Devils Lake and now is working toward a bachelor’s degree from Mayville State University.
Hoffarth was president of Lake Region’s Student Senate and also served as the college’s head delegate to the North Dakota Student Association.
