Governor appoints Republican woman to university board

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia’s governor has appointed a Gwinnett County woman to the state Board of Regents, which oversees Georgia’s public colleges and universities.

Rachel Little of Loganville is a paralegal and chairman of the Georgia Republican Party’s 4th congressional district. Gov. Nathan Deal earlier named her to the board of the Georgia Department Driver Services and the state’s now-disbanded Immigration Enforcement Review Board. She’s the former chairwoman of the Gwinnett County Republican Party.

Little is a Georgia State University graduate who works for the animal health division of a pharmaceutical company. She was sworn in Friday.

Little replaces Dean Alford, who resigned from the board as he was being charged with racketeering and attempted theft in connection with allegations that he faked documents to secure business financing.
