MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley's office confirms it has appointed two people to fill positions on the Board of Trustees at Alabama State University.
Angela McKenzie and Dr. Jeffrey Langham were appointed to the board Tuesday, according to Governor Bentley's Communications Director, Jennifer Ardis.
McKenzie is Vice President at Regions Bank and Langham is the Superintendent of Elmore County Public Schools.
Governor Bentley originally tapped Macon County Schools Superintendent Jacqueline Brooks and Tuscaloosa businessman Fitzgerald Washington to fill the posts, but they were blocked by the Senate Confirmation Committee in April.
Both McKenzie and Langham will have to be approved by lawmakers in the next legislative session.
