Former senator named chairman of UM curators board

Former state Sen. Wayne Goode has been named chairman of the University of Missouri board of curators for 2013.

He was elected Friday morning by his fellow curators during the second day of a two-day meeting in St. Louis. He replaces David R. Bradley of St. Joseph.

Goode, of St. Louis, has been a university system curator for three years. He represented the Senate’s 13th District in St. Louis County until his retirement in January 2005.

Curators elected Don Downing of Webster Groves as the board’s vice chairman.
