SUL ROSS’ HARVESON ELECTED TO TEXAS WILDLIFE ASSOCIATION OFFICE

harvesonDr. Louis Harveson, Sul Ross State University professor of Natural Resource Management and director of the Borderlands Research Institute (BRI), was recently elected Second Vice President for Programs of the Texas Wildlife Association.

Harveson was elected to a three-year term at the association’s annual convention, held last month in San Antonio. He joins new President Greg Simons, San Angelo; Vice President Marcus T. Barrett IV, San Antonio; and Treasurer David Anderson, Houston, as new officers of the 6,700-member organization.

As Second Vice President for Programs, Harveson will serve as an Officer contact and representative for all organizational education program efforts, and he serves as an organizational liaison and resource in matters relating to wildlife and/or natural resource research at the university and college level and with state and federal agencies.

The Second Vice President position is reserved for professional biologists that hold an academic post and Harveson’s election represents the first time in 28 years of the organization that the position is outside of the Texas A&M University system.

Harveson joined the Sul Ross faculty in 1998 and has served as BRI director since its formation in 2007.
