PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on Monday appointed nine people to two boards that oversee public education in the state.

Ducey filled two spots on the Arizona Board of Regents, which is the governing body for Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona, and seven on the State Board of Education, which is responsible for K-12 schools.

“Arizona is grateful to the outgoing members for their service and commitment to students’ success, and for their steady hand in guiding our educational institutions during the pandemic,” Ducey said in a press release.

“Our new board members have big shoes to fill, but I am confident that with their new energy, fresh ideas and diverse backgrounds, we will be able to continue strengthening education for our students.”

Gregg Brewster and Doug Goodyear were selected to join the Board of Regents. Goodyear is CEO and a founding partner of DCI Group, a global public affairs firm based in Washington, D.C., and Brewster is a sales executive in the health care industry and an officer for the ASU Alumni Association.

They are taking over for Bill Ridenour and Ron Shoopman, whose eight-year terms expire this year.

“We warmly welcome Mr. Brewster and Mr. Goodyear to the board and thank them for the dedication and commitment to serving public higher education in Arizona,” Board of Regents Chair Lyndel Manson said in a statement.

“The board will undoubtedly benefit from their leadership as we work together to ensure access to quality public higher education in Arizona and drive solutions that impact our state.”

Ducey’s picks for the State Board of Education are Jason Catanese, Jenny Clark, Jacqui Clay, Scott Hagerman, Katherine Haley, Julia Meyerson and Karla Phillips-Krivickas.

They’ll take over for departing members Calvin Baker, Jill Broussard, Michele Kaye, Janice Mak, Luke Narducci, Armando Ruiz and Patricia Welborn.
