LARAMIE — The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees recently gained two new board members.
John MacPherson of Saratoga and Jeff Marsh of Torrington took their seats on the 12-member board last week.
Gov. Matt Mead made the appointments when he announced his statewide board, committee and commission appointments. The Senate recently confirmed the appointments.
