PIERRE, South Dakota — Gov. Dennis Daugaard is appointing retired Daktronics President and CEO Jim Morgan to the state Board of Regents.
Morgan, of Brookings, retired in 2013 after a four-decade career at Daktronics, which makes and services video display systems for customers around the world. He led the company for 12 years.
Daugaard says Daktronics linked university research to business development, and promoted the value of internships in higher education and workforce development. He says Morgan understands the critical role universities play in preparing young people for successful careers in South Dakota.
Morgan holds bachelor's and master's degrees from South Dakota State University. His appointment to the Board of Regents is effective April 3. He succeeds Dean Krogman, who is retiring after 12 years on the board, including two as president.
