MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Senate has approved three new trustees for Alabama A&M; University and the reappointment of another trustee.

The Senate voted Tuesday to confirm Birmingham businessman Kevin Ball, state Senior Services Director Neal Morrison of Cullman, and Coca-Cola executive Perry Jones of Riverwoods, Ill., as new trustees. The trustee approved for another term was Anniston businessman James Montgomery.

The four were selected by Gov. Robert Bentley. The Senate votes are the last step in their approval.

Two others chosen by the governor, Athens banker Ginger Harper and Mobile businessman Norman D. Hill, are awaiting a vote in the Senate. Senate Confirmations Committee Chairman Jabo Waggoner, R-Vestavia Hills, said some senators had concerns with the two and he’s waiting to see what the governor wants to do.
