Purdue will have two new trustees next month and will need to elect a new chairman.
Governor Mike Pence is appointing Sonny Beck to the board along with new student trustee Kelsey Quin. He’s reappointing Don Thompson to a second term.
Beck received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Purdue and is president of Beck’s Superior Hybrids, a seed company in Atlanta, Indiana. He’s served as a member of the Purdue Ag Advisory Council, the Purdue University Executive Council, and Parents Council.
