University of Missouri curators chose new leaders at a board meeting Friday in St. Louis.
Donald Cupps of Cassville was elected to a one-year term as chair. Pam Henrickson of Jefferson City was elected vice chair. They begin their duties as members of the curators’ executive committee on Jan. 1. Both are graduates of the University of Missouri, Columbia.
Cupps, who is a senior partner at Ellis, Cupps and Cole and attorney for the city of Cassville, was appointed to the Board of Curators in January 2011. He had been serving this year as board vice chair and will succeed Don Downing of St. Louis, whose term as chairman expires at the end of this month.
Henrickson, also appointed to the board in 2011, is a partner in the Jefferson City law firm of Goller, Feather and Henrickson.
The nine-member board is the governing body for the University of Missouri System, which has campuses in Kansas City, Columbia, Rolla and St. Louis. Its members are appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. Curators serve six-year terms, with three terms expiring every two years.
