PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard has named the chairman of a mechanical contracting company to the South Dakota Board of Education.

Daugaard says Gopal Vyas’ time at Tessier’s Inc. means he has experienced the importance of technical institute graduates to the state’s workforce.

The Board of Education deals with education policy in South Dakota.

In 1977, Vyas joined Tessier’s, which specializes in service and custom fabrication of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.

Vyas replaces Terry Sabers, who resigned from the board in June. The term goes through December 2019.
