LARAMIE, Wyo. — Buffalo attorney David Palmerlee is the new president of the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees.

Palmerlee has served as the board's vice president for the past two years. He was chosen by the board last week to succeed Dave Bostrom of Worland, who served two terms as board president.

Palmerlee first was appointed as a trustee by Gov. Dave Freudenthal in 2005 and was appointed to a second term by Gov. Matt Mead in 2011. Palmerlee's term on the board expires in 2017.

John MacPherson of Saratoga was elected vice president.

Appointed by the governor with consent of the Wyoming State Senate, the UW Board of Trustees consists of 12 members appointed to six-year, staggered terms. As UW's governing body, the trustees oversee the university's major policy and budgetary matters.
