Former state Sen. Karen Fraser is leading The Evergreen State College Board of Trustees as of July 1.

Fraser, who joined the board last year, was formerly an Evergreen adjunct faculty member. She was elected chairwoman by the trustees at their June meeting.

Fraser left the Senate in early 2017 after 24 years. She previously served on the Lacey City Council, Thurston County Board of Commissioners and as a state representative.

The board, which oversees policy at the college and delegates authority to its president, has seven members chosen by the governor to serve six-year terms. The governor also appoints a student to a one-year term.

Former board chairman Fred Goldberg will continue on as vice chairman.
