MANSFIELD - Zane N. Swanger, of Lewistown, has been appointed to the Mansfield University Council of Trustees.
The junior political science major is a graduate of Lewistown Area High School. He is the son of D. Scott and Julie Swanger.
Swanger says he always has been interested in politics and the inner workings of government and he takes his role as "the voice of the students" very seriously.
"I'm going to be their representative and we're going to work together as an entire student body," Swanger said. "I want them to know about the things that are going on. It's very important that everyone is involved, especially in the big decisions, and informed."
Swanger's appointment to the MU Council of Trustees was made by Governor Tom Corbett and approved by the Pennsylvania State Senate.
