BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A former state lawmaker and a banker are the newest appointments to North Dakota’s Board of Higher Education.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple announced the choices on Monday.

Nicolas Hacker is the president North Dakota Guaranty and Title Co. and a former state senator from Bismarck. He will replace Terry Hjelmstad of Minot, who is stepping down after one term.

Greg Stemen of Fort Ransom is president of First State Bank of North Dakota in LaMoure and Marion. He will replace Grant Shaft, of Grand Forks. Shaft has served the maximum two four-year terms.

Hacker and Stemen begin their terms on July 1.

The nine-member board is the governing body for the North Dakota University System, which includes the state’s 11 public colleges and universities.
