CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Four women have been nominated to fill an open position on the governing board of Oregon State University.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports (http://bit.ly/1MllBYa ) that an OSU Board of Trustees committee considered the four candidates Thursday. But instead of choosing one, it decided to forward all four names to Gov. Kate Brown.

Brown’s choice will need to be confirmed by the Oregon Senate.

The finalists for the vacancy on the 15-member board are Julia Brim-Edwards, a senior director at Nike; Sue Hennessy, a retired vice president of Kaiser Permanente Northwest; tax attorney Elise McClure, who is also a retired Starbucks vice president; and Charlene Addy McGee, deputy refugee health coordinator for Multnomah County.

OSU President Ed Ray, a nonvoting member of the board, says all four are highly qualified for the seat.
