Perry gives ex-secretary of state Steen new role

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Outgoing Texas Secretary of State John Steen has been given a five-year term on the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Gov. Rick Perry announced the appointment Friday. Steen served as the state's chief elections officer for one year before announcing last month that he would step down.

Higher education issues are familiar to Steen. He holds a committee position within the University of Texas System and is a former trustee of San Antonio-area community colleges.

Replacing Steen as secretary of state is Houston attorney Nandita Berry, who will become the first Indian-American to hold the position. She is the wife of conservative Houston radio talk-show host Michael Berry.
