TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A former majority leader of the Kansas Senate will be the next leader of the state Board of Regents.

The board announced the election of Tim Emert as chairman on Monday. He begins a one-year term in July, succeeding Ed McKechnie, of Arcadia.

The nine-member board also elected Fred Logan, of Leawood, as vice chairman.

Emert is a Republican from Independence. He was appointed to the board in 2010 by Democratic then-Gov. Mark Parkinson, a Democrat. He holds a bachelor's degree in journalism and a law degree from the University of Kansas.

Logan was appointed by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback in 2011. He earned undergraduate and law degrees from Indiana University.

The Board of Regents is the governing body of Kansas' public universities, community colleges and technical colleges.
