Ervin Bryant of Spring has been appointed the next student regent for The Texas A&M University System by Governor Greg Abbott. Bryant replaces the outgoing student regent, Stephen F. Shuchart of Houston.
Bryant is the first student regent ever appointed from Prairie View A&M University - where he is a third-year student in the university’s Honor Program majoring in history and a minor in political science.
Bryant is also a member of the Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society, the Blackstone Pre-Law Society, and Student Government. He is also the president of the Prairie View A&M Debate Team and the founder of The Panther Party Community Service Group.
“I thank Governor Abbott for his inspired selection,” said Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp. “The appointment of a student regent from Prairie View A&M is long overdue. I look forward to working with Mr. Bryant in his important new role as the A&M System continues to build on its current momentum.”
Bryant’s term is effective June 1 and will expire May 31, 2019.
