PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The state Board of Regents has recognized an outbound student regent and two departing university presidents.

The board said Tuesday that the honors are for their service to South Dakota’s public higher education system.

Regent Joseph Schartz served on the board for three years. He graduated from South Dakota State University this month.

SDSU President David Chicoine is departing the post after spending more than nine years leading the institution. He is remaining at the school as a faculty member.

James Smith has been recognized for serving as president of Northern State University for seven years. He will become president of Eastern Michigan University in July.
