Nixon appoints two to Missouri agencies

Tuesday, June 2, 2009 | 9:26 p.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has named a former college president to a state student loan board, and a former county prosecutor is expected to join a state housing panel.

Former Truman State University President Jack Magruder will serve on the Missouri Higher Education Loan Authority. Magruder lives in Kirksville and is now president of A.T. Still University.

Also on Tuesday, the governor appointed Timothy Joyce of Warrenton to the Missouri Housing Development Commission. Joyce was the Warren County prosecutor from 1981 to 1991. He now works in private legal practice.

Both selections require Senate confirmation when the Legislature convenes next year, but the appointees can serve on an interim basis until then.
