NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Maggie Wright of Flower Mound has been appointed by Gov. Greg Abbott to serve as student regent on Stephen F. Austin State University's Board of Regents during the 2017-18 academic year.

Wright, who will graduate from SFA this month with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice, will immediately begin pursuing a master's degree in public administration beginning this summer.

"Being chosen as student regent is a great honor," Wright said. "I look forward to being able to share the student body's perspective with the Board of Regents. I hope to make the most of my time as student regent by attending as many events as possible and attempt to make my mark on SFA."

During her four years at SFA, Wright has been a Traditions Council member and both a Jack Camp counselor and student director. She is currently Traditions Council president and has served as vice president and member relations officer in years past.

"As student regent, I want to learn about the different university policies and procedures; being a CJ major has made me very interested in all of the behind-the-scenes aspects of things. I love this school and the people here so I hope to be a role model and lead by the SFA Way. I want to make the school the best it can be."

Wright's first official duty will be attending the quarterly meeting of the SFA Board of Regents July 24-25.
